Parnell, of Biloxi, is accused of taking more than $30,000 during her employment at Margaritaville, De Back said.

Parnell’s arrest came after the resort brought a complaint to the Biloxi Police Criminal Investigations Division.

Parnell was taken to the Harrison County jail and is held on a $50,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.
