Two women were arrested Wednesday on felony shoplifting charges.

Biloxi police Sgt. O'Neal Adams said Ethel Marie Freeman, 50, and Natalie Patrice Young, 33, were arrested after police responded to a shoplifting call at Belk department store in Edgewater Mall.

Adams said Freeman and Young attempted to leave the store with merchandise they hadn't paid for hidden in bags.

They were taken to the Harrison County jail, where Judge Albert Fountain set a bond for Freeman at $50,000 and a bond of $25,000 for Young.
