Suspects have been developed in the alleged fraudulent use of a credit card and the burglary of a business, according to Cleveland Detective Bill Parks.

One suspect is in custody while the other remains at large.

Parks has identified G.W. “Alan” Rogers, 27, and Shasta Lewallen, 38, as the suspects in multiple fraudulent use of credit card cases.

Rogers was arrested Friday and charged with theft over $1,000, burglary, 11 counts fraudulent use of a credit card, nine counts of attempted fraudulent use of a credit card, and two failure to appear warrants, according to Bradley County Jail officials.

“We don’t know her whereabouts and we are asking for help in locating her,” Parks said of Lewallen.

Lewallen is wanted on charges of theft over $1,000, burglary, 11 counts fraudulent use of a credit card, nine counts of attempted fraudulent use of a credit card as well, according to Parks.

The credit cards were stolen during a business burglary, reports indicated.

Anyone having information concerning Lewallen’s whereabouts is asked to contact Parks at 559-3321.

n A man wanted on a charge of hindering a secured creditor has been taken into custody by Bradley County Sheriff’s Office detectives.

Donnie Ray Brantley, 47, was arrested in Kingston, Ga., after investigators alleged he attempted to keep creditors from repossessing a travel trailer.

Brantley reportedly told investigators the camping trailer was at one location, but they learned during the investigation the Dutchman Denali camper was at another location. Brantley had allegedly made a false statement to the investigators.

A report filed by BCSO Criminal Investigations Division detective Zech Pike noted Brantley had “attempted to alter the appearance of the camper by removing decals from the exterior. Mr. Brantley, removal of the camper from Tennessee to Georgia, the (alleged) false statements made to investigators and immediately moving the camper to a storage facility three days after speaking with TBI Special Agent Luke Muhonen about being delinquent on payments shows that he was hindering the seizure of the camper due to failure to make payments.”

Brantley was released from the Bradley County Jail after posting a $100,000 bond, according to Jail officials.
