The Dalton Police Department is looking for six men that investigators say have been ripping off area businesses and obtaining large sums of money in the process, according to a news release.

An investigation began in August after several area businesses reported that individuals were cashing bad checks at their stores. Carneceria Nacho on Underwood Street, one of the businesses that reported being ripped off, reported incidents in which people cashed bad checks in amounts of $811.72, $725.46, $489.37, and $478.24. 

The Carneceria located on MLK Boulevard also reported that individuals had cashed bad checks there as well in the amounts of $475 and $467.

The DPD is asking for help from the public in finding these suspects they have outstanding arrest warrants for felony manufacture of fake checks, felony financial identity fraud and misdemeanor forgery in the first degree:

- Timothy Scott Hester, 28 years old, Tunnel Hill

- Tevin William Miller, 25 years old, Dalton

- James Juan Acevedo, 26 years old, Dalton

- Jacob Corbin, 25 years old, Chatsworth

- Charles Tinsley, 34 years old, Dalton

- Armand Boyd, 20 years old, Winston, GA


Two individuals, Carl Creason, 34, of Crossville, Tennessee and Joshua Wulf, 29, of Dalton, have already been arrested in connection with this investigation and were charged with felony manufacture of fake checks, felony financial identity fraud and misdemeanor forgery in the first degree.

Anyone with information on the six suspects is asked to contact Detective Chris Tucker at 706-278-9085, ext. 9165.
