A Hattiesburg JC Penney employee at the Turtle Creek Mall has been arrested and charged with embezzlement.

On Thursday, Hattiesburg Police responded to a call from the mall from the store's loss prevention officer who informed them that 21-year-old Bianca White had been stealing from the store for several months.

White is accused of stealing over $10,000 over a period of several months. She allegedly made manual refunds on more than 60-occasions during that period.

White appeared in court today and an undisclosed bond was set.
