Alabama authorities are reviewing why a sheriff's deputy released a woman who's wanted in three states and dubbed the "Military Mistress."

The Mobile County Sheriff's Office confirms a deputy recently stopped Bobbi Ann Finley and her husband near Interstate 10.

The woman is wanted on check fraud charges in three states but wasn't arrested.

Finley got her nickname in 2010 when she was suspected of moving from one military base to the next and marrying service members to gain access to their bank accounts.

Finley and her husband are now wanted on check charges in Colorado, Oklahoma and Oregon. Oregon authorities say they were stopped in a stolen car in Alabama and released.

A spokeswoman for the Mobile County Sheriff's Office says the department is investigating why Finley wasn't arrested.
