Authorities said Shayla Sutherland and Jessica Pina used prayer to con five unsuspecting victims in the Georgia Counties of Cobb, Douglas and Paulding counties.
“The two suspects in all of these cases would use some type of tactic distracting victims to focus their attention elsewhere,” said Acworth Police Capt. Mark Cheatham.
In one case, the women convinced one victim to pray with them as they stole her credit cards. Investigators said the women used the stolen credit cards to buy high-end electronics and other items.
Detectives were able to track down a silver getaway car seen at all the crime scenes, which led them to Sutherland and Pina.
