Man rips off Dalton Walmart Neighborhood Market

Posted: Updated:

Dalton police are searching for a man who used quick hands to rip off the Walmart Neighborhood Marker of $540 in cash. 

On August 27, two men entered the Walmart Neighborhood Market on West Walnut Avenue and split up. The first man went to the customer service desk and handed the clerk nine $100 bills and asked for change. The clerk went into the back area and then returned with $900 in $20 bills. After the clerk counted out the money, the suspect divided the money into two stacks and quickly tucked the money into a pocket without the clerk noticing it. He then told the clerk that he needed the money in $5 bills instead of $20’s. The clerk took the remaining $20 bills without realizing any were missing and went into the back to count out more change. Once the clerk was in the back, the suspect left with the original nine $100 bills and also $540 in $20 bills that the clerk did not realize had been taken.

A second man went to a separate cash register and also asked for changed for $100 bill several times, but this man did not leave the store with any extra money. Both men left the store together in a white or silver vehicle. 

The suspect is a Hispanic male with dark hair and facial hair. He wore jeans with a black shirt unbuttoned to the middle of his chest. The man traveling with the suspect was also a Hispanic male, clean shaven with dark hair and a slender build, wearing jeans and a white long-sleeved button down shirt.

Anyone who knows the identity of either man is asked to please contact Detective Brian Shirley at 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 189.
