A 41-year-old woman embezzled more than $2,000 from a Gulfport business over a period of two months, a police spokesman said.

Amanda Seymour turned herself in Tuesday after learning police had obtained an arrest warrant for her on an embezzlement charge, Gulfport police Sgt. Joshua Bromen said.

Money had disappeared at All-Phase Electrical Supply while Seymour was a temporary worker at the business on 25th Avenue, Bromen said. She took payments while she worked there when money came up missing in June and July, he said.

Justice Court Judge Melvin Ray signed an arrest warrant and set her bond at $2,500.

Seymour was held at the Harrison County jail and was released on bond later Tuesday.

The case will go to the next grand jury.

Embezzlement carries maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
