WAYNESVILLE, NC -
Waynesville Police are asking for your help to identify a woman they say is involved with identity theft linked to a security breach at Bojangles restaurants.

The person of interest seen in the released photos made cash withdraws and transferred money to withdraw at a Bank of America location in Decatur, Georgia.

Bojangles reported in December that restaurants operated by a single franchisee were affected in Pickens, Hendersonville, at Patton Avenue location in Asheville, Waynesville and in Newport, Tennessee.

According to Lieutenant Chris Chandler with the Waynesville Police Department, thieves used malware to steal credit and debit card information of customers at multiple Bojangles' restaurants. 

The first reports of fraud started coming into Waynesville PD back in mid-October.

The Pickens County Sheriff's Office received more than 30 reports of fraud in December linked to Bojangles. But according to Detective Sargeant Chuck James who has been working with area banks, the number of potential victims is in the hundreds.    

"Whoever is acquiring this information is likely putting it on black market websites and selling it off."
