A Las Vegas resident is accused in the theft of more than $1,000 from a co-worker in Biloxi.

Biloxi police say Jasmine Austion, 29, was arrested Thursday night on a charge of grand larceny.

A man called Biloxi police to report a co-worker had stolen the money from him. Police made contact with Austion near Agincourt Avenue, where she also was cited for driving under the influence, no driver’s license and disorderly conduct.

She was taken to the Harrison County jail. Judge Bruce Strong set bond at $50,000.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending, police say.
