Johns Creek Police Need Your Help

JOHNS CREEK, GA -- Have you seen this woman? Police in Roswell and Johns Creek say that she is wanted in connection with an entering auto case and credit card fraud.

On Sept. 23, a victim reported that her wallet had been stolen. She did not know where it had been taken from. Shortly after, her credit cards were used at the Target store located at 2625 Peachtree Parkway, Johns Creek.

Police believe this is the same woman who committed a recent burglary in Roswell. In that case, stolen credit cards were used at the Target store at 2650 Holcomb Bridge Road, Alpharetta, and at Wal-Mart stores in Fayetteville and Riverdale.

The suspect is a white female. Police believe that she had a male accomplice in the Roswell incident.

If you have any information in these cases, contact Inv. M.L. Stokes with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Department (678-513-5878) or Det. D.
