    Warrants have been issued for 43-year-old Alcie Almecoh Green, who was identified by a Crime Stoppers tipster, police say. Police are seeking Green on two counts of identity fraud and two counts of theft by deception.

    The victim is former “Married to Medicine” star Kari Wells, according to a police report. Wells told WSBTV the $9,000 shopping spree made her feel “violated.”

    "At first I was shocked," Wells told the news station. "I get a phone call out of the blue. And they say the account that you've opened, you've maximized your credit on this account and I say, 'Well, I haven't opened an account.'"

    The lead detective on the case suspects Green may have sold high-end items purchased with the stolen identity, police said. The department is asking those who may have purchased items from Green to contact police, as the items are considered stolen and must be returned to the stores from which they were fraudulently purchased.
