The North Augusta Department of Public Safety is asking for the public’s help in locating a local woman wanted for shoplifting in Georgia and identifying another woman wanted for fraud.

The agency posted two pictures on its Facebook account Wednesday.

The first post shows an unknown woman getting out of a vehicle. North Augusta police are asking for help identifying this woman because she is a suspect in credit card fraud in the area, police reported.

Anyone with information about this woman’s identity is encouraged to call North Augusta Public Safety at 803-279-2121.

The second post on Wednesday shows a North Augusta woman wanted by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office for shoplifting in Augusta.

On Dec. 24, Holley Nichole Phillips, 38, was seen stealing merchandise from a Target on Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway, according the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Phillips was seen on security cameras stealing items from the store, police said.

Anyone with information on Phillips’ whereabouts is asked to call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Department at 706-821-1010.
