Arkansas Women Arrested for Credit Card Fraud in Oxford, Mississippi
On August 2, 2018, the Oxford Police Department took a credit card fraud report from a victim at Belles and Beaus. While inside of the store, Khavona Morris (30 of Helena, Arkansas) distracted the clerk while the second suspect, Katrice Missouri (31 of Little Rock, AR), stole credit cards from the victim’s purse. They then went to Wal-Mart and purchased $6,675.23 in prepaid debit cards.
Morris and Missouri returned to Oxford on February 13, 2019 and went to Crème De la Crème on South Lamar. Again, they distracted the clerk and stole her credit cards. They went back to Wal-Mart and bought $3,008.08 worth of prepaid debit cards.
On March 14, 2019, Morris and Missouri were arrested by the West Point Police Department on unrelated charges. After they posted bond in West Point the Oxford Police Department transported them to the Lafayette County Detention Center where they were both booked on two counts of felony credit card fraud. They were given a bond of $15,000 by a Justice Court Judge.
OPD believes that these suspects were involved in a string of crimes with the same modus operandi. If you believe you were a victim please reach out to your local law enforcement agency.
