4 arrested for shoplifting at North Point Mall

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Four southwest Atlanta residents were arrested Thursday and charged with shoplifting from three department stores at North Point Mall.

Alpharetta Department of Public Safety spokesman George Gordon said a Dillard's employee witnessed the four suspects -- Isaiah Burt, Raheem Littlejohn, Dexter Williamson and Sequan Williamson -- stuffing Polo sweaters and shirts into a bag.

The suspects left the store and tried to drive away, hitting two other cars in the process, Gordon said. An Alpharetta officer eventually pulled the car over on the GA 400 ramp to Holcomb Bridge Road. The suspects tried to run, but were eventually caught at the Studio 6 motel on Old Dogwood Road.

While searching the car, investigators found items that had apparently been stolen from Dillard's, Macy's and Von Maur, including designer jeans, perfume and Titanium watches, according to Gordon.

All four suspects were booked into the Fulton County Jail and charged with theft and obstruction. Dexter Williamson, who was driving the getaway car, was also charged with several driving offense, including reckless driving, failure to maintain lane and driving without a license.

Gordon praised the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety for making quick arrests in this case.

"We always maintain a high police presence along the shopping corridor of North Point Parkway and throughout the city of Alpharetta," Gordon said in a statement. "This fact coupled with excellent communication between the North Fulton police agencies usually helps lead to a quick identification and capture of suspects who commit these types of property crimes."
