Shoplifter flees in purple car in Milton


February 10, 2014
MILTON, Ga. A shoplifting suspect tried to flee from the Windward Walmart Jan. 30 in a purple car. He was caught almost immediately.

Police were called to the Walmart at 3:43 p.m. after employees reported they saw a man dressed in a khaki jacket and Army hat take an Xbox game console, tablet computer and a stereo and then tried to leave without paying for them.

When employees tried to stop him, the suspect fled, getting into a purple Pontiac with Tennessee tags.

Police found a car matching the description on Windward Parkway less than a mile away and spoke to the two occupants. The passenger, Dustin Matthew Dowdell, 25, of Cumming, matched the description of the suspect.

He allegedly admitted to the thefts and the stolen merchandise was found in the car. Dowdell was charged with shoplifting. The driver was released without charge.
