BILOXI -- Police on Tuesday arrested three Tampa, Fla., residents suspected of using counterfeit credit cards to get cash advances at Hard Rock Casino.

Mercedes Sabrina Fisher, 50; Daniel Ernest Myvett Sr., 48; and Darrick Wilford, 32, each face charges of credit card fraud.

Fisher and Myvett made two transactions Monday before the three were arrested, Detective Nick Sonnier said.

Their first transaction failed, he said.

Wilford was with them during the second transaction several hours later. He had obtained money from the casino April 19 with a fake credit card, Sonnier said.

Wilford reportedly was able to take the cash April 19 and leave the Hard Rock before it was determined the credit card was bogus, he said.

Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set bonds at $50,000 each for Fisher and Myvett, who each face two fraud counts.

Fountain set Wilford's bond at $25,000.

The three were held at the Harrison County jail.
