Tennessee man arrested after shoplifting tool kit from Home Depot in Dalton

According to a Dalton Police Department incident report, on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020, at approximately 10:52 AM, officers were dispatched to a shoplifting in progress at The Home Depot located at 875 Shugart Road. Officers were advised of the suspect's description and that the male was carrying a ridgid tool kit. Officers were advised that the suspect had fled into the creek area that runs between Home Depot and Checkers. When officers arrived in the area, they noticed a male later identified as Jonathon Dewayne Sivley, 30 of Cleveland, TN, matching the description coming from the creek area with his boots muddy and pants wet around the ankles. Sivley stated he was "waiting on a friend" and that he didn't know anything about the shoplifting that had occurred. Several officers searched the area for the stolen tool kit but only found the security alarm spider wrap that the tool kit was wrapped in. The loss prevention associate stated they witnessed Sivley walked out the door without paying for the Ridgid 18V Octane Combo Kit. The loss prevention associate showed an officer video footage of the shoplifting, and the officer saw what was described to him as well as the suspect he had detained. Officers asked Sivley about the shoplifting, and where he put the tool kit, he replied he was never at The Home Depot. While searching Sivley officers found a small pair of cutting pliers used to cut the spider wrap. Sivley was placed under arrest and transported the Whitfield County Jail. Sivley was charged with shoplifting, false statements, and possessions of tools for the commission of a crime.Â
