Senoia woman charged with multiple counts of identity theft

by Wes Mayer

A Senoia woman suspected of multiple counts of identity theft was arrested in Atlanta Friday following an investigation by the Senoia Police Department.

The investigation began on July 9 this year when the owner of the Big Chic in Senoia discovered $7,000 had been stolen from his checking account, said Lt. Jason Ercole with the Senoia Police Department. Two unauthorized accounts were used to make 17 different withdrawals from the victim’s account over a three-month period.

According to Ercole, the suspect was identified as Regina Huling, 34, of Senoia. Huling was a former employee of the Bic Chic, and she obtained account information on the victim’s checking account and created the two other accounts in other people’s names to make the unauthorized drafts, Ercole said.

On Friday, Huling was arrested in Atlanta by authorities with the Atlanta Police Department, and she was transported to the Coweta County Jail.

Huling is charged with 17 counts of identity fraud and violation of probation, and she is now being held at the Coweta jail without bond, Ercole said.
