Last week, Paulding Detectives made two arrests which helped solve an entering auto theft ring in Paulding County. 

On Thursday Nov. 11, Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division along with Deputies from the Warrants/Civil Division, executed a search warrant at 183 Potomac Drive in Dallas. 

During the search of that residence, a significant amount of property that had been stolen from approximately nine different unlocked vehicles over the past few months were located.

Additionally, Detectives located numerous driver’s licenses, identification cards, financial transaction cards, and checks from victims both inside and outside of Paulding County.  

Detectives also located drug paraphernalia along with suspected methamphetamine in the two rooms that the suspects occupied within the residence.
