An Elberton woman faces one hundred and seventeen counts of felony theft by taking charges.

An internal audit at a Wal-Mart in Banks County led to an investigation being conducted, where 39-year old Mary Jo House was arrested on the previously mentioned charges.

Current estimates show that tens of thousands of dollars have been stolen through forged checks being cashed at the store. The total amount of money stolen has yet to be determined as the investigation is on-going.
