BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A 53-year-old Biloxi woman accused in a scheme in which apartment tenants were swindled out of more than $1,000 is now in jail.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1su3ayB) Biloxi police arrested Debra Jean Stacener on a charge of felony embezzlement Friday.

The arrest stems from an investigation into the theft of money from her employer, the Southwind-Woodland Towns Apartment Complex.

Police say Stacener kept for herself rent payments from tenants over about six months. Taking more than $1,000 from an employer is a felony under state law.

Police took her to the Harrison County Jail where she is held on a $10,000 bond.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Stacener.
