Augusta, GA (WJBF) – According to a spokesperson for the Augusta University’s Public Safety Division, a woman wanted for thefts in multiple states has been captured.

The woman was wanted in connection to thefts from Raleigh, North Carolina to Augusta.

On Tuesday, the call went out for people to be on the lookout for the woman. According to the spokesperson, the woman, who has been identified as Jannette Renia Douglas, was in jail before the day was up.

It turns out that Douglas had been arrested by the USC Aiken Public Safety Department on the school’s campus. Officers saw posts about her being wanted and contacted the Augusta University Public Safety Division.

Augusta University investigators, along with a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office investigator, questioned Douglas Wednesday. The spokesperson says Douglas will be facing several felony charges.

Douglas reportedly admitted to focusing her activities in hospitals and on campuses. She would reportedly take the credit cards and leave the personal items, ID cards, driver’s licenses and keys where they would be found and hopefully returned.

Douglas reportedly told investigators that those items were personal and she did not like stealing them. The money would be returned to the victim from the bank then no one was hurt. She told investigators she was just trying to pay her bills.
