Suspects sought for stolen credit/debit cards


The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office is asking citizens to be on the lookout for two credit and debit card thieves.

Last Wednesday, the two thieves, both women, stole cards from employees of office buildings around the Summit Health Complex on Bullsboro Drive, Inv. Chad McDonald said. They then used the cards to spend thousands of dollars in stores throughout the Ashley Park shopping mall.

Witnesses describe the two suspects as having darker skin. One was described as being heavy-set, five-feet, eight-inches tall, with an olive complexion and blonde hair with red streaks. The other woman was described as having a medium build and darker brown skin, black hair, possibly a wig, and spoke with a Hispanic accent. Witnesses saw the women drive away from one of the offices in a white, four-door Hyundai passenger car, McDonald said.

Anyone who can assist in identifying these women are asked to contact Inv. McDonald at 678-423-6720.
