Gautier man accused of swiping wallet from casino patron

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Biloxi police said a Gautier man stole a wallet containing more than $1,000 cash from a patron at the Golden Nugget casino more than a month ago. Wednesday, the suspect was arrested.

Investigator Nick Sonnier said police arrested 31-year-old Thomas Marshall Stewart on a charge of grand larceny.

According to Sonnier, Stewart swiped the wallet from a casino patron on Oct. 14. Police said the wallet was found the same day, but more than $1,000 was missing.

The victim signed an affidavit on Stewart, Sonnier said, and he was picked up by Gautier police Wednesday.

Stewart was booked into the Harrison County jail on a $25,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.
