Marion County woman charged with identity theft

A south Mississippi woman will appear in justice court next week to answer to charges of trying to steal her employer's identity.

Attorney General Jim Hood says 58-year-old Pamela Loizzo of Morgantown is accused of fraudulently trying to obtain credit cards in her employer's name and of using those cards to purchase goods and services.

Hood says Loizzo was arrested Tuesday by the Marion County Sheriff's Department. A dispatcher says she was released from jail Wednesday after posting an $80,000 bond.

Loizzo's court appearance is set for Dec. 11.
