Henry County seeks identity thief with possible Cobb ties

- She has racked up thousands of dollars in charges in her victims' names and investigators with the Henry County Police Department hope someone may be able to help them identify her.

According to investigators, the female suspect purchased more than $12,000 worth of merchandise at Walmart and Kroger stores in February and March.

"So she's using the victim's credit card information and coming here and purchasing like gift certificates and stuff like that," explained Henry County Police Capt. Mike Ireland.  "That's primarily what they do.  They don't normally go in and make a big purchase.  They usually come in and purchase gift certificates because that is easier to do than walking out of Walmart with a 50 inch television."

Investigators were able to link the woman to two separate cases because they discovered that in both cases, the victims lived in Powder Springs, but the suspect used their cards in Clayton and Henry Counties.

"Once we compared the two cases together and we looked at it, we realized that this was the same individual," said Capt. Ireland.

Police ask anyone who can identify the woman from the surveillance images to call Det. S. Hunter at 770-288-7572.

"This could be you," said Capt. Ireland. "You know, you don't have to be careless with your identity--only thing they have to do is just get a hold of a receipt or something and this could happen to anyone. So, it's very important. It's very important for somebody to actually come forward if they recognize this person."
