BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A New Orleans woman faces credit card fraud charges in Biloxi.

Police say 36-year-old Toyoka Malone was arrested Saturday after she entered a Winn-Dixie grocery store and used a stolen credit card to buy eight re-loadable Visa cards worth $400 each for a total of $3,200.

The Sun-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/Mtcs98 ) an employee noticed Malone and another woman - each wearing disguises - buying the cards. Police say the employee recognized the women from a December news report in which the suspects wore similar disguises.

The employee confronted the women, who fled. The employee and another person followed Malone until officers arrived. The second suspect remains at large.

Officers seized a rental car and 11 re-loadable Visa cards.

Malone was booked into the Harrison County Jail. Bond was set at $50,000.
