Tips helped Biloxi police arrest a man suspected of credit card fraud Friday shortly after they asked for assistance, officials said. Police credited a story at SunHerald.com with the quick identification of the two.
Matthew Ross Grayson, 21, turned himself in to Biloxi police and was arrested on a charge of felony credit card fraud. He was taken to the Harrison County jail on a $10,000 bond.
Investigator Brock Newell said Grayson and another person were identified 45 minutes after the story went online. The two were being sought after a credit card was fraudulently used. Its owner had lost it Oct. 17 in Gulfport.
The other person is believed to have fled the state, Newell said.

"The victim isn't sure exactly where he lost the card," Newell said. "The suspects just found it and charged a bunch of stuff right away."
