OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Police say two Arkansas women are responsible for crimes throughout the city.

Khavona Morris, 30, and Katrice Missouri, 31, are accused of stealing credit cards from people in two Oxford businesses.

According to the Oxford Police Department, one incident happened in August 2018 at the clothing store, Belles and Beaus.

Capt. Hildon Sessums said Morris distracted the store clerk while Missouri stole the cards from the victim’s purse.

Sessums said the women then went to a Walmart store and purchased more than $6,500 in prepaid debit cards.

They are accused of doing the same thing at Crème De la Crème on Feb. 13 and buying $3,000 worth of prepaid debit cards.

West Point police recently arrested the two on unrelated charges. After making bail in Clay County, Oxford police transported them back to Lafayette County.

They were booked into the county jail on two counts of felony credit card fraud.

Investigators believe the two women were involved in similar crimes.

Police are asking any possible victims to contact a local law enforcement agency.
