The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a woman who managed to get away from loss prevention employees at Belk. The suspect escaped in a red Ford Mustang with a white canvas top.

DPD spokesman Bruce Frazier says the incident happened at the Belk store at Walnut Square Mall on February 10th.

Frazier says loss prevention employees noticed the suspect pulling tags off of clothing items in the store and stuffing them into her bag.

The loss prevention employee confronted the suspect and attempted to detain her.

Frazier says the woman was able to get away from the store, but dropped her bag in the process.

Shirts, socks, and shoes that were inside the bag were valued at a total of $272.15.

Loss prevention employees told police that the woman had shoplifted from the store before and gotten away with clothing that she later sold online.

Frazier says the suspect is a heavyset white female with blonde hair that was pulled back in a ponytail. She wore a black jacket. The suspect has a mole on her right cheek and the left side of her chin. The red Ford Mustang was a late 90’s or early 2000’s model.

If you know who this woman is or if you have any other information about this incident, please contact Detective Brian Shirley at 706-278-9085 extension 9189.
