WASHINGTON, N.C. (WNCT) — The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a woman it says is involved in a string of felony identity thefts and other crimes.

Billie Mizelle, 49, also known as Billie Jo Mizelle, is wanted for a combined 14 felony counts of identity theft, forgery of an instrument, uttering a forged instrument and obtaining property by false pretense. Beaufort County Sheriff’s investigators obtained warrants on her after the victim reported three people had passed him stolen fraudulent checks totaling over $5,900.

Lance Lloyd Montague Jr., 38, of Wanchese has also been charged in this case. He was arrested recently by the Kill Devil Hills Police Department.
