Known Swindler Caught on Bank Camera

Posted:

FRANKLIN, Tenn.- There may be more victims of the woman accused of scamming investors out of money and then abandoning her children. New surveillance video of her has surfaced. Franklin Police said she was caught on tape withdrawing money that doesn't belong to her.

Franklin Police are still looking for 45 year old Linda Peach Harmon. She disappeared in December. She was captured on a surveillance camera at a bank inside a Brentwood convenience store. Investigators say she was withdrawing money that doesn't belong to her.

"We know she does have ties to neighboring states, which are all part of the investigation under way trying to get her into custody," said Charles Warner with the Franklin Police Department.

Investigators believe Harmon embezzled nearly $50,000 from investors in New York. Now police believe there are other victims.

"We've gotten calls from across the United States from people that both claim to know her possible where-abouts where she either has been or maybe located in the future as well as information from other victims from not only the region but across the United States who also claim to be victimized by Linda Harmon," said Warner.

Police say Harmon used the stolen money to pay part of her lavish life style that included an estate in Franklin. In December officers went there looking for her. Harmon's two sons told police she was gone.

Later, they were arrested for lying and helping their mother escape. Police have a hard time believing Harmon would abandon her family, but they say it's not unusual for her to pick up and move.

"The time that she spent here she moved from several different locations into several new homes.  She doesn't stay in one place for very long," said Warner.

Police are asking the people to call Franklin Police if they Linda Harmon.
