Gulfport woman accused of posing as bail agent

GULFPORT, Miss. —  

A 33-year-old Gulfport woman posing as a bail agent and collecting thousands of dollars from clients of A Grant Bail Bonding has been arrested on two felony charges of false pretense.

Harrison County Sheriff's Major Ron Pullen tells The Sun Herald Susan A. Johnson was arrested Saturday after deputies received a tip about her possible whereabouts in Pass Christian.

After sheriff's deputies got to the home, Pullen says, Johnson attempted to flee on foot but was quickly captured.

He says Johnson had collected about $4,900 from two clients of A Grant Bail Bonding.

It was unclear whether Johnson has an attorney.
