The Oxford Police Department arrested two women from Arkansas this week for allegedly being involved in an elaborate credit card theft scheme and any additional victims are being encouraged to come forward.

According to reports, on Aug. 2, 2018, Khavana Morris, 30, Helena, Ark. and Katrice Missouri, 31, of Little Rock, Ark. went to Belle’s and Beau’s clothing store on the Oxford Square. While inside the store, Morris distracted the clerk while Missouri stole credit cards from the victim’s purse.

The two women then allegedly went to Walmart and purchased $6,675 in prepaid debit cards.

Morris and Missouri returned to Oxford on Feb. 13 and went to Crème De la Crème on South Lamar Boulevard. Again, they distracted the clerk and stole her credit cards. They went back to Walmart and bought $3,008 worth of prepaid debit cards.

On March 14, Morris and Missouri were arrested by the West Point Police Department on unrelated charges. After they posted bond in West Point the Oxford Police Department transported them to the Lafayette County Detention Center where they were both booked on two counts of felony credit card fraud. They were given a bond of $15,000 by a Justice Court Judge.

“We believe that these suspects were involved in a string of crimes with the same modus operandi,” OPD stated in a press release. “If you believe you were a victim please reach out to your local law enforcement agency.”

OPD can be contacted at 662-232-2400.
