Ocean Springs Alderman Fired By Casino

An Ocean Springs alderman is out of a job at a Biloxi casino after being charged with a misdemeanor in the theft of three $25 chips.

Biloxi police arrested alderman Joe Carvin June 20th after security personnel at The Palace Casino Resort reported they had spotted him pocketing the chips. Carvin was arrested on the misdemeanor charge of petit larceny.

A casino spokesman says Carvin was fired from his job at the Palace Casino this week. Initially Carvin was placed on suspension. He had been employed by the casino for about three years.

Carvin was elected alderman last year. He is expected to appear in Biloxi City Court August 22nd to face the charge.

If found guilty he would lose his Mississippi Gaming Commission license and could be fined up to $570.
