The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify three people who used counterfeit money to buy merchandise in at least three stores in the Dalton area recently. The suspects all wore COVID masks, however investigators believe that they can still be recognized by visible facial features or their distinctive clothing. The incident happened in August. The three suspects, a white male and two Black females, arrived together at the Dollar General store at 1004 Riverburch Parkway within a few minutes of each other. The white male first used a counterfeit $50 bill to buy some items and receive change. A few minutes after he left, a Black female wearing a light blue/gray cap and a red shirt used a fake $100 bill to make a purchase and receive change before leaving. After she left, a Black female wearing a cap with a logo for the fourth-place New York Yankees used two fake $50 bills to make a purchase. After the three suspects left the store, they showed up together at two other Dollar General locations along Cleveland Highway in Whitfield County where they passed more fake bills and also returned some of the items they bought at the Riverburch Parkway location for refunds. The suspects parked outside of camera view so no information is available about their vehicle. The white male stands about 6 feet tall with a thin build and appears to be in his 20s. The two Black females appear to be of shorter, smaller statures and also appear to be in their 20s. Pictures of the suspects are included below. Anyone who recognizes these individuals is asked to please contact Detective John Edwards at 706-278-9085, extension 9-152.
