According to Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston:

Over approximately the last two months, the Sheriff’s Office has received several reports regarding thefts of four-wheel-all-terrain-vehicles (“4 wheelers”) from a variety of neighborhoods countywide. These thefts had not been concentrated in any particular area. No video surveillance footage or eyewitnesses were available in these cases, leaving detectives very little to follow as leads.

However, employing a different tactic, detectives consistently questioned a large number of persons arrested on other charges about their knowledge, if any, of any such activity regularly. Some of these interviews resulted in the development of suspects in some of these thefts. The detectives gathered information about a particular address connected to the case as well.

As most suspects with whom deputies regularly interact are inevitably on probation or parole, GCSO detectives paid a visit to a private residence on Michael Drive near Calhoun on Tuesday (Sept 1), and while there, conducted a probationary search. During this search, GCSO personnel found Tyler Stanley, age 22, of 800 Blance Road, Cedartown,  who was being sought pursuant to warrants charging him with unrelated crimes. He was arrested without incident.

The detectives also discovered two stolen ATVs, a motorcycle with an altered/removed serial number, another ATV with an altered/removed serial number, and a stolen trailer.

Robbie Dotson, age 35, and Linda Dotson, age 33, both of 110 Michael Drive, Calhoun, were both also arrested without incident.

Tyler Stanley faces charges of  3 counts of Receiving Stolen Property, Operating a ‘Chop Shop’, Removing/Altering VIN Numbers, and Possession of Methamphetamine.

Robbie Dotson faces charges of 3 counts of Receiving Stolen Property, Operating a ‘Chop Shop’, Removing/Altering VIN Numbers, and Possession of Methamphetamine.

Linda Dotson, faces methamphetamine related charges.

Another defendant is being sought in connection with this case.
