Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A woman found in possession of thousands of dollars worth of stolen items may be linked to a string of thefts across metro Atlanta, according to authorities.

The initial incident occurred on December 4, when Gwinnett police were alerted to a shoplifting call at Victoria’s Secret in unincorporated Snellville. The suspect, identified as 55-year-old Leta Davis from Athens, had fled the scene before officers arrived.

Two days later, an officer returned to the store to gather more information about Davis. They decided to wait at the store in case she returned.

On December 11, Davis indeed returned to Victoria’s Secret. Although nothing was stolen during her visit, surveillance footage showed her entering a nearby Bath and Body Works shortly after. Davis was seen carrying an empty tote bag, and five minutes later, she left the store with the bag filled with merchandise.

Authorities conducted a traffic stop and apprehended Davis, who initially provided a false name. Further investigation revealed that she had outstanding warrants from Barrow, Cherokee, and Cobb counties for previous shoplifting charges and was currently on probation.

A search of Davis’s vehicle uncovered multiple trash bags filled with stolen merchandise from both Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works, valued at several thousand dollars.

Davis was subsequently arrested and booked into the Gwinnett County Jail. She now faces charges of theft by shoplifting, theft by receiving stolen property, giving a false name, and misdemeanor obstruction.

Gwinnett Police intend to collaborate with other law enforcement agencies in metro Atlanta and neighboring retail stores to determine if Davis is responsible for additional crimes.

In an effort to provide more detail and depth, police are expanding their investigation to ensure all potential thefts connected to Davis are thoroughly examined.

As the case develops, law enforcement agencies and retailers alike will remain vigilant to prevent further thefts and protect businesses from financial loss.
