"She seems to be preying on married men," said Brookhaven Police Major Brandon Gurley. "The ads seem to be targeting married men... and they are from a female seeking a long-term relationship," he said.

Brookhaven Police said on March 16, one victim met Bailey at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott hotel. She allegedly asked her victim to bring cash to pay for the hotel room, and did not want any records due to her impending divorce.

Investigators said a male accomplice ambushed the date, snatched the cash, and took off with Bailey. A getaway vehicle is described as a 2013 white Honda Accord with visible exterior damage.



Police also learned of a similar crime possibly committed by Bailey in Duluth, days later. Investigators believe there could be more victims and hope more men will come forward.

"There are a lot of reasons why married men may not want to report this," Gurley said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Individuals can remain anonymous and possibly receive a reward up to $2,000.
