[January 26, 2009]  NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) -- A Wal-Mart employee in Mississippi is accused of rolling back prices -- way back -- on about $550 worth of merchandise.

Natchez Police say 20-year-old Erica Marie Jones was arrested Thursday and charged with theft, along with 22-year-old customer Tiffany Williams.

Police say Jones charged Williams $5.25 for a load of merchandise that included seven pairs of jeans, a baby crib, laundry detergent, diapers, pizza, coffee and beef.

The actual total of the haul would have been $547.50.

The two women were being held Friday without bond pending court appearances. It was not immediately known if they had retained attorneys.
