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.
