A WLOX News Action report has resulted in another arrest.

Donald Reynolds was arrested Friday on a charge of felony embezzlement.

Reynolds is accused of taking money for gravestones and never delivering the product.

Last week, Action Reporter A.J. Giardiana shared complaints about Reynolds Monument in D'Iberville.

Grieving families told WLOX they paid hundreds of dollars to Reynolds to make headstones for the graves of loved ones, but six to eight months later, those families are still waiting.

Ken Streb said, "Two days after we wrote the check it cleared our bank. So he was quick to take our money or take our money now all we want is, you know, what we're paying for."

Wanda West said, "Right now I'm not at peace because I know my daughter's headstone is not there, and my kids go to the grave and it's still not there."

Reynolds is being held on 50-thousand dollars bond. Harrison County officials expect more charges to be filed if more complaints come in.
