Athens Police need help finding a violent woman on the loose. Police say Tammie Castro of Athens is stealing from people throughout the area, and even threatening some with a 6-inch knife.

The 41-year-old is accused of breaking into homes of people she knows, and also stealing from complete strangers at the grocery store.

"That's what got all this started, she took a purse that had several credit cards in it, and she's used them all over Athens," said Det. Josh Rhodes.
