MARIETTA — An Atlanta woman remains in the Cobb County Jail on multiple charges of financial identity fraud, racketeering, forgery in the first degree and theft by taking.

Sabrina Yvette Cantrell, 41, was transferred from the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta to the Cobb County Jail in May on one count of racketeering, nine counts of identity fraud, nine counts of forgery and eight counts of theft by taking. She remains in the jail without bond and on a probation violation, according to Cobb jail records.

According to the arrest warrant, Cantrell wrote counterfeit checks to multiple Kroger grocery stores in Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties at least 46 separate times for groceries or cash in the amount of $40,280.76 between Feb. 7, 2011 and June 29.

Cantrell is accused of posing as five different individuals, using the drivers license numbers of eight real residents and forging the names of the posed people to pay for goods at Kroger grocery stores throughout Cobb. Each transaction was between $77 and $124.

According to the warrant, she is accused of committing the crimes at the following Kroger locations in Cobb: 4875 Floyd Road in Mableton, 3300 Cobb Parkway in Atlanta, 3895 Cherokee St. in Kennesaw and 2100 Roswell Road in Marietta.

Nancy Bodiford with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office said they could not comment on the case because it is pending but said Kroger filed the complaint.

Well... she was schooled by the best we have in the USA. Bankers, Mortage Brokers, Real Estate Lawyers, Angelo Mozillo, or any of our criminal politicians.

This is what Americans get for using the same tactics our government and private corporations ram down our throats daily.

No double standard here folks.

If people like Cantrell used half the effort to be productive citizens as they put into being criminals, the world would be a better place.
