Henry County Police seek help finding fraud suspect

Investigators need the community's help in locating a woman they believe is responsible for thousands of dollars of fraudulent transactions.

The Henry County Police Department issued a "be on the lookout" for Monica Mitchell, 28, on Monday.

Investigators are not sure how Mitchell obtained the credit and debit card information of her alleged victims, but both of the victims live in Powder Springs.  Police said Mitchell used their financial information to charge 20 separate purchases at Henry and Clayton County stores.

Police identified Mitchell as their suspect after they released multiple surveillance images of her from area Walmart and Kroger locations in April.  Investigators tried to convince Mitchell to come in for questioning in June, but she refused. 

"So now that we have a clearer picture and a clear understanding of who she is, and apparently she's not going to come in and talk to us," explained Henry County Police Major Mike Ireland.  "We're basically putting it out there again for if anybody recognizes her and know of her whereabouts to give us a call."

Police believe Mitchell lives in the Stockbridge area.
