Two charged in credit card fraud case

Thanks in part to public response from a media release, the Dalton Police Department has made a pair of arrests in a recent credit card fraud case. Twenty-six-year-old Jacob Lee Norris and 33-year-old Jean Marie Jones, both of 903 Grandfield Place, turned themselves in on Dec. 22 on warrants related to the case.

The original incident happened in late November and early December when a stolen credit card was used fraudulently more than 20 times around Dalton to rack up more than $700 in charges. Investigators retrieved surveillance footage of several of the transactions and found that the suspects had children along during the incidents.

Investigators distributed images of the two suspects in area media on Dec. 13. After seeing news reports with the images, Jones and Norris contacted the Dalton Police Department. An investigator obtained arrest warrants and served them Sunday after the pair surrendered.

Norris was charged with 11 counts of financial transaction card fraud and one count of theft of lost or mislaid property. Jones was charged with 12 counts of financial transaction card fraud and one count of theft of lost or mislaid property. The mislaid property charge is in connection with taking the credit card in question, which investigators believe was dropped accidentally by the victim at a gas station.

The Dalton Police Department thanks all area media outlets that ran the original story for their help.
