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.

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.
