*****  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  *****

Incident:   Robbery and Elder Exploitation
Date:   July 14, 2017
Location:   Dunwoody, GA

The Dunwoody Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division is seeking the assistance of the public in locating Herbert Lewis and Clinton Stone.  Lewis and Stone have active warrants for Robbery by Sudden Snatching, Financial Transaction Card Fraud, and Elder Exploitation.

Since 2016, both subjects have been seen approaching elderly individuals at retail locations in the metro area, distracting the victims by various methods, and stealing their wallets and purses.  In almost every case, the suspects then use the stolen credit cards to make purchases worth hundreds of dollars.  The victims are targeted solely because of their age and, in some cases, their health.

In the attached video clip, a 67 year-old disabled veteran was at a gas station in Dunwoody when the suspects approached him. You can see Clinton Stone distracting the victim, appearing to help him select a drink from the cooler, while Herbert Lewis approaches the male and steals his wallet.

Anybody with information regarding the whereabouts of either Herbert Lewis or Clinton Stone is asked to contact Detective A. Stallings at anthony.stallings@dunwoodyga.gov or at (678) 382-6921. ANONYMOUS TIPS may be submitted via the SUBMIT A CRIME TIP tab at www.dunwoodypolice.com  or by texting C-R-I-M-E-S (274-637). Use the key word DPDTIPS at the start of your message.  Each of these methods is confidential, encrypted, and completely anonymous.
