2 Women Arrested In Dalton For March 7 Robbery

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

The Dalton Police Department on Monday arrested Casey Renee Cantrell, 24, of 139 Diamond Lane in Tunnel Hill and Tiffany Michelle Whitton of 231 River Oaks Drive in Dalton on warrants related to an armed robbery that occurred March 7 at a Dalton residence. Investigators also arrested 43-year-old Tracy Chambers of 3335 Chatsworth Road in Dalton last week on charges related to the case. The Dalton Police Department also has a warrant for the arrest of 23-year-old Matthew Wesley Stone of 153 Diamond Lane in Tunnel Hill in connection to this case.

On March 7, officers were dispatched to 939 Avenue F in response to a burglary and armed robbery call. When officers arrived, the suspects had already left. Victims at the scene told police that they were sitting at home when there was a knock at the door. Two female voices, one of which the victim recognized as Tiffany Whitton, told them to open the door. When the victim refused, someone started to kick the door. The victim ran to hide in the bathroom as the suspects broke in and called 911. The victim’s husband reported that he saw his wife run into the bathroom, and that he saw a male suspect, identified as Matthew Stone, knocking on the bathroom door with a tire iron. When police were called, the suspects left, taking the victim’s purse from the couch. The victims knew the suspects who forced their way into the house.

While investigating this incident, a detective spoke with Tiffany Whitton who alleged that the victim in this case stole $60 from her earlier in the evening and that she’d gone to the victim’s house with the other suspects in order to get her money back. Ms. Whitton said they encountered the victim at Wal-Mart on Shugart Road and sat in the car to talk after it started it raining. Sometime during this conversation, Ms. Whitton says her money was taken.

Investigators believe that this money may not have been stolen, but could have been part of a drug deal for pills which were not delivered.

Tracy Chambers was charged with armed robbery (residence, other weapon), burglary (forced entry, residence), and making false statements. Tiffany Whitton was charged with robbery, burglary (forced entry, residence), possession and use of drug-related objects, and giving false name/address/DOB to a law enforcement officer. Casey Cantrell was charged with robbery, burglary (forced entry, residence), theft by taking, larceny, pick-pocketing and misdemeanor possession of a schedule-4 barbituate.

The outstanding warrant for Matthew Stone is for charges of burglary and armed robbery. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Stone is asked to please contact Detective Ricky Long with the Dalton Police Department at 706.278-9085, extension 168.
