Former Material girls manager Krista Brown was arrested by Flowood police on Monday for embezzlement.
Material Girls owner, Whitney Giordano Foster, says that police went to arrest her at her current job but weren't able to find her. She turned herself in shortly after.
Foster says that more evidence was found and added to the case pending in Madison County after Brown was arrested in Ridgeland in December of 2014.
She is charged with embezzling over $28,000 from the Ridgeland store. Police have determined that at least $14,353 in cash deposits was taken from Material Girls' Flowood location in 2013 and 2014.
A total of $42,000 was taken from both stores.
Foster says, "I turned this new evidence over to the Flowood Police, and they have done a great job. I look forward to our day in court when justice will be served."
Brown is currently free on bond and is scheduled to go to trial on the Ridgeland charges on September 21.
