Couple accused of taking money from dart association

ST. MARTIN — Authorities say a Jackson County couple accused of taking money from a dart association face an embezzlement charge.

Biloxi police investigator David Shoemaker tells The Sun Herald 41-year-old Vica Ann Dees and 42-year-old Bryson John Dees, of St. Martin, allegedly took more than $14,000 from the Mississippi Gulf Coast Dart Association over several months.

Shoemaker says the two were arrested, taken to Harrison County jail and released on bond.

He says the investigation into the embezzlement began in May when the association’s board discovered a discrepancy in its general fund account after an audit.

The Biloxi-based association serves Harrison and Jackson counties and has more than 800 members.

It was unclear whether the Dees have attorneys.
