ALPHARETTA, Ga. – An Atlanta man is suspected in the theft of several sets of comforters from the local Sears store.
Police were called out March 10 to the Sears store at North Point Mall after a man was seen picking out two comforters, each valued at $200, and trying to leave the store without paying. When approached by employees, the suspect ran, dropping the items. He fled in a 1990s black Ford Explorer. Workers said they recognized the man as doing the same thing two days earlier and several times the month earlier.
Using the vehicle’s tag, police issued a warrant for Chet Deoblo Stinson, 41, of Atlanta for shoplifting. He was arrested April 17 in Carroll County on a DeKalb County shoplifting warrant.
