Discrepancies in the financial books at the Walmart Neighborhood Market on U.S. 49 have led to the arrest of a 26-year-old employee.

Gulfport police Sgt. Clayton Fulks said Krista Renae Augustine was arrested Wednesday on one embezzlement charge.

He said Augustine is accused of stealing about $1,600 from store registers from March 12-23.

Fulks said Walmart management was made aware of discrepancies and alerted the Gulfport Police Department.

Augustine was held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center in lieu of a $5,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner.

Sometimes the “perfect crime” doesn't quite play out as intended. Here are some criminals who could use some practice.
