BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Two women accused of using a stolen credit card turned themselves in on Thursday. Police said the women surrendered after seeing surveillance photos on local media.

Leslie Crystal Walker and Cathy Monique Howard are charged with credit card fraud. Judge Albert Fountain set their bond at $5,000 each.

The investigation began when a purse was reported stolen on the 900 block of Howard Avenue on January 15. The victim also said someone made unauthorized purchases with some of the credit cards that were in the stolen purse. The cards were used at local businesses.

On Wednesday, police distributed surveillance photos of the suspects and their vehicle. Walker and Howard turned themselves in the next day.
