WAYNESVILLE , N.C. (WATE) - The suspect in a credit card breach at several Bojangles restaurants has been spotted by surveillance cameras at a bank in Georgia, according to investigators.

Officials say the woman was seen making withdrawals at a Bank of America in Decatur, Georgia.

The woman is suspected of using credit card information stolen from a Bojangles in Waynesville, North Carolina.

That breach is believed to be connected to several other cases, one of which was in Newport.

That incident occurred in late November. Police told 6 News they were investigating a string of fraudulent credit and debit card purchases at the Bojangles in Newport.

Officers believe the information was stolen through the credit card reader which was connected to the restaurant's wi-fi account.

Waynesville police say that malware installed on Bojangles' computers was used to steal the information.

Bojangles' released a statement to 6 News on the matter saying that they do not comment on active police investigations.

The restaurant goes on to say that the franchise operator of the five restaurants impacted took immediate steps to secure customer data, and that there have been no reports of any issues since the breach allegedly occurred.

Bojangles says that customers who visited any of the five affected locations in either October or November should continue to monitor their bank and credit card statements, as well as contact their financial institutions if they notice any suspicious activity,

The restaurant lists those location as:

  • Asheville, N.C. (Patton Ave.)
  • Hendersonville, N.C.
  • Pickens, S.C.
  • Waynesville, N.C.
  • Newport, Tenn.
