Dalton police looking for man who wrote counterfeit check

Posted: Updated:

Dalton police are looking for a man who used a counterfeit check to purchase more than $3,300 worth of merchandise from Lowe's and then had the merchandise refunded for gift cards.

Police said on Sept. 4, the man, wearing jeans, a polo shirt and a camouflage baseball cap,  made a purchase with a check at Lowe's on Cleveland Highway in Dalton.

The man appeared to be with a juvenile in the store. He later made a second purchase and was recorded on video leaving with residential windows on a cart.

A store employee who remembered the transaction told investigators that the man spoke a mixture of English and Spanish.

The man later returned the items and received gift cards in the amount of the full purchase price.

The incident was reported to police later in the month after the victim discovered a bad check had been written on his account.

Upon investigating with his bank, the victim discovered that a check had been counterfeited with his account number and made to appear to be a business check for a business called "Gilbert and Gincy Cody, Agency Services."

Anyone with information on the identity of this suspect is asked to please contact Officer Charles Williams at 706-278-9085, extension 280.
