Former Material Girls manager arrested in Flowood for embezzlement.

Former Material girls manager Krista Brown was arrested by Flowood police for embezzlement.  Material Girls owner Whitney Giordano Foster filed embezzlement charges and alleged she stole $14,353 from the Flowood location of the store.  Brown was arrested last December by Ridgeland police and charged her with embezzling $9,556 from her Ridgeland store. However, Mrs. Foster told JJ that the amount embezzled at the Ridgeland store has been discovered to be over $28,000. Brown stands accused of embezzling over $42,000 from the two stores.   She is currently free on bond.  She is scheduled to go to trial on the Ridgeland charges on September 21.


The Flowood affidavit states Brown worked at Material Girls for over eight years and allegedly embezzled money from the business from Feburary 2014 to November 2014.  JJ reported on December 16, 2014:

Ridgeland Police arrested Krista Brown for allegedly embezzling $9,556 from her employer, Material Girls. Material Girls is owned by Whitney Giordano Foster.  Ms. Foster said she was the General Manager of Material Girls and worked at the company for over seven years.

The police report states Ms. Brown had access to the company paypal account.  Material Girls sells women's clothing at its retail stores in Ridgeland and Flowood as well as on its website.  The company provides payment services through Paypal to online customers. The paypal account allows the merchant to withdraw funds via electronic transfer to a bank account or paper checks issued by Paypal.  Ms. Brown directed Paypal to issue her checks drawn on the Material Girls account.  The total amount of the checks was $7,674.  Ms. Brown also made purchases for herself through the Paypal account.

Ms. Brown apparently said the first check was issued due to a "keystroke error" but instead of returning the money she said she "deposited it into her account to help with old bills."  She then transferred $3,000 to herself so she could purchase a Tahoe for a boyfriend, Jacarran Crump. She also confessed to using her company American Express Card to make other purchases for herself.  She then confessed to more Paypal charges of $1,349 for hotel rooms and Victoria's Secret lingerie.  Earlier post.

Weighing in at a buck seventy, she obviously had the fatback necessary to catch 'ol Jacarran's eye. Badonkadonk.

Good for Whitney Foster. So many times businesses and churches don't prosecute because they are embarrassed.

Northwest Rankin, Mississippi College Degree in Education. Where in her upbringing did she come to believe that crime would be tolerated and that she could get away with it?

That girl was married and the gifts and some of that money went to her boyfriend. Perfect example of biting the hand that feeds you. Good for the store owner who had also bought that employee that was stealing from her a car.

If this girl lives to be 100 years old, this will follow her all her life. She should hold her head in shame.....

To the person who said she should hold her head in shame maybe you should read your bible.

"Rankin County Hoodlum Busted for Embezzlement" is noticably absent. Can't imagine why.

To the person asking about her NWR and MC education and where in her upbringing she went wrong, her mother was arrested from embezzlement from attorney Rick Fountain a long time ago. He didn't press charges, though, so it's not all over the news. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

It's amazing that this is so news worthy. it is really sad for both of these young women. One is filled with guilt for a mistake and the other is filled with hate. Both need to get in their Bible. One to pray for forgiveness and the other to pray to be able to forgive. It is obvious most of the people commenting do not spend much time in their Bible. I personally will say a prayer for both of them And their families. It's tragic that people get joy out of others pain. No one reading this is without sin

This is a tragic story for all concerned

People who 'get in their Bible' get joy out of proselytizing what others need/ought to do. More of that "I'm here to tell you what's best for you" attitude. You, Miss/Mr Bible Thumper don't know that one is filled with guilt and you don't know that one is filled with hate. You're propped back in your recliner, reading with a fifty watt bulb, judging others and casting stones. Get back 'in your Bible'. And get thee behind me!

Her boyfriend, Jacarran, got a $3000 Tahoe? Nice ride. Weird name.

This store owner should tend to her business. This is one of numerous employees who have and are stealing from her now. Why would she hire one of them back, especially this one that she just pressed charges on. Confusing. Maybe she should get her head out of the Material Girl Drama and down to the bottom line. Really, if they arrested this girl in November did they hire her back and let her steal for 7 more months or did it take them 7 months to uncover more. At the very least if I was her and I was not going to work in my business I would hire a good accountant to keep up with it. Crazy

You need to get your facts straight...she was fired from Material Girls in December 2014 after first embezellment was found in store in Madison. She was charged and arrested in Madison county and made bond. She was later hired at other stores in Dogwood. (Not Material Girls) where she made false statements on applications...currently works at Ann Taylor in Dogwood.. More embezellment charges were filed in Rankin County when more evidence was uncovered in Dogwood Material Girls. Accountants and owner have been involved in case so they are well aware of their business. The problem here was that owner really trusted this employee.....too bad it had to come to this.

Just saying this is not the first employee to steal from this store owner's business. You would think she and her accountant would have placed dual control procedures in place to protect her and her business. Thanks for the help on getting facts straight, the news makes it look like she did it back last fall and then again recently and if you read some of the post I have, I was not the only one confused. Yes, it is too bad it has come to this. I hope the store owner is not so trusting now.

Anonymous said...

Yes, what she did was wrong. However, I can not stand the owner. From my personal experience, I have heard many ugly things she has had to say about some of her customers. I do know what she finds so mesmerizing about herself that she holds herself in such a "better than others" regard. There is nothing exceptional even on that shallow of a level that she possesses either. Sometimes karma comes around, and bites you!

I hate to see anyone defrauded, but it just strikes me that when you decide to name your store after a vapid Madonna song extolling the virtues of rampant excess; well, you reap what you sow...

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
