GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Two Gulfport women are under arrest after allegedly working as a team to steal from the Kmart on Highway 49. On Tuesday, management at the store reported a shoplifting incident that led police to Aisha Michelle Hill, 25, and Casey Deanna Handy, 19.

According to Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania, Handy was working as a cashier at the store when Hill came through her checkout line with more than $500 worth of merchandise. Authorities said Handy scanned the items, and then allowed Hill to leave without paying.

Both women were detained by Kmart Loss Prevention officers until police arrived. Hill and Handy were both charged with felony shoplifting.

Both women are being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center with bonds of $10,000 each.

    Full-time Waveland city workers, primarily police officers, who take-home vehicles outside of the city limits could see a change to the city's policy soon. City leaders said the current policy is antiquated and needs to be rewritten into something that would benefit both the officers and the taxpayers.
