Hattiesburg police search for man connected to credit card fraud, burglary

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg police are searching for Floyd Lamont Sims, who is the suspect of a Mother's Day car burglary and subsequent credit card fraud.

Sims is described as a 29-year-old black male from Hattiesburg, who is thin, taller than six feet and has a poor complexion.

According to the victim, a passenger in Sims' car stole her purse out of her car on Hardy Street near the Rent-a-Center on Sunday, May 11. Sims then made charges on her credit card at the Exxon on Broadway Drive and the Wal Mart on Highway 49.

Sims has previously been arrested in Hattiesburg for simple domestic violence in September 2012.
