Can you help Dalton PD catch a gym thief?

DALTON, Ga. (WDEF) – Dalton Police hope you can help them find whoever decided to rip off a muscle-bound weightlifter at a local gym.

Police say someone broke into a car at a local gym and stole the driver’s wallet.

The victim’s credit card was later used at an area Walmart and a suspect was recorded on video.

Dalton Police spokesman Bruce Frazier said the break-in happened in the parking lot of the Crossfit gym.

That’s located at 609 South Hamilton Street.

The theft occurred August 9th between 5 and 6 pm.

A witness reported seeing two men in the area of the car that was broken into.

They left in a white passenger car of an unknown make or model.

The victim cancelled his credit cards after calling police, but learned that his card had already been used at the Walmart on East Walnut Avenue.

The man was caught on surveillance video using the card to make a purchase in the store’s outdoor garden center.

The man wore a gray Nike hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up, a black baseball cap, white athletic-type shorts, and black shoes.

If you know this man, please call Officer Patrick Lee at 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 491.
