Quick Change Scam: Dalton Police Seek Suspects’ Identification

DALTON, Georgia (WDEF) – The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying two women who were apparently working together to try to rip off cashiers at the Walmart Neighborhood Market using a quick change scam. One of the women succeeded in stealing $100 from the store.

The incident happened at the Walmart Neighborhood Market on West Walnut Avenue on October 4th.

DPD Public Relations Bruce Frazier states:

“Shortly after 1:00 pm, the two women entered the store. One of the women asked for change for $700. After the cashier explained that she only had enough money at her register to give change for $200, the suspect handed over two $100 bills and asked for change. After getting her change in $20 bills, the suspect then asked to have her change in $50 bills, handing back some of the change while concealing five of the $20 bills in her purse. The cashier didn’t realize until after the suspect had left the store that she’d been ripped off. The suspect was a light-skinned woman with blonde hair and a medium build wearing a pink t-shirt and a long black skirt.

At the same time, the second female went to the customer service desk and also asked for change for $700. This second suspect also tried the same tactic to confuse the cashier but was unsuccessful. This suspect was darker skinned, with a slim build wearing a black shirt and black vest with a long black and white skirt. Both suspects left the store together in a SUV.”

Anyone who recognizes these women is asked to please contact Detective Brian Shirley at 706-278-9085, extension 9189.
