Dalton PD looking for desperado who shoplifted Eagles CD and power tool from Walmart

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify a man who shoplifted an impact drill and a CD by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member the Eagles. The suspect was spotted by loss prevention but was already gone before police were dispatched to the scene. The theft happened on January 16th at the Walmart on Shugart Road. The suspect, who wore a white #11 Georgia Bulldogs football jersey, black ball cap, and dark rimmed eyeglasses over his lyin’ eyes, entered the store and left with the Eagles CD and a red Hyper Tough brand impact drill. The suspect didn’t take it easy after possibly realizing he was seen by store security. Instead, he apparently threw down the empty drill box and the CD in the parking lot before taking it to the limit in a blue Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck and fleeing the scene. Police are asking anyone who recognizes the suspect to help them arrange a visit to the Whitfield County Jail with the suspect where, unlike the Hotel California, he will not be able to check out any time he likes. If you know the suspect’s identity, please contact Officer Mefford by email at wmefford@daltonga.gov or call 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 604.
