The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a suspect in a theft case that resulted in losses of at least $11,000 in merchandise.
It’s a case that, according to the department’s Facebook page, stretches all the way to Cincinnati, Ohio, and investigators hope members of the public can help in locating the suspect.
According to the Facebook posting, a suspect or suspects posed as an employee(s) of a construction company with offices in Georgia and Ohio to purchase some “expensive and nice zero-turn mowers” from a location on Murphy Boulevard in Gainesville.
“The order was billed to a third-party company in Cincinnati, and the suspect(s) picked up the mowers in person on Oct. 10, 2019, in Hall County. The third-party company reported the incident to the Cincinnati Police Department on Dec. 13, and the case made its way to the HCSO.”
“The bottom line is that the criminal(s) made off with nearly $11,000 in equipment, victimizing three businesses in the process.”
Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect in the accompanying photo is asked to contact HCSO Investigator Matthews at (770) 533-7683.
