DPD Investigates Theft of Jeep

A Jeep left in the Lowe’s parking lot on Glenwood Avenue/Cleveland Highway was stolen sometime over the weekend and Dalton police investigators are hoping a member of the public might have information to crack the case.

The Jeep was left parked in the lot by a Dalton resident who is in the middle of moving residences.  He got permission from store management to leave his vehicle on the property and left it parked on Friday, September 18th.  On Monday, September 21st, the victim was driving by the Lowe’s and noticed that his Jeep was no longer in the parking lot and called police.  Store management confirmed that nobody had the vehicle towed because they knew the vehicle was supposed to be there, and an officer confirmed that the vehicle had not been repossessed.

The Jeep is a silver two-door soft top with a lift kit and black rims and “Midsouth Jeeps” decal on the driver’s side door area and a Whitfield County Fire Department sticker on the back window.  Pictures of the vehicle are included with this release.

Anyone with information on this crime or the whereabouts of the vehicle is asked to contact Detective Aaron Simpson at 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 253.
