Alpharetta police arrest felon for stolen credit cards, bike


September 23, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Two people were arrested Sept. 14 for a multitude of drug and theft charges after they allegedly stole a car and credit cards.

Police were alerted by staff at an Alpharetta hotel that a stolen credit card had been used to buy a hotel room and rent a car. Police arrived and entered the room to find the suspects, Walter Paul Linn, 37, and Stevie Lynn Whisnant, 21, both of Winder, asleep in the bed.

According to police, in plain sight were a loaded semiautomatic pistol, several hypodermic needles and methamphetamine. A search of the room turned up the suspected stolen wallet along with checks and credit cards belonging to the victim, out of Athens. They also found the keys to the car that was rented using the stolen credit card and keys to a motorcycle also reported stolen. There was also a fake license plate for a motorcycle.

Linn, who is a convicted felon, allegedly said he had bought the motorcycle and did not know it was stolen.

Inside the car, police found multiple needles and traces of meth.

Whisnant allegedly admitted the pair stole the wallet and credit cards from the victim.

Linn was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, theft by receiving a motor vehicle, credit card fraud, possession of schedule II drugs and possession of drug-related paraphernalia. Whisnant was charged with possession of schedule II drugs and possession of drug-related paraphernalia.
