NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston police say they have arrested a 26-year-old woman who stole nearly $450 worth of perfume and cologne from Victoria Secret, along with other items from several stores.

Tenisha Gibbs was arrested Thursday night and charged with three counts of trespass after notice and one count of property crime enhancement. Her bond was set at $10,940, according the Charleston County Detention Center website.

An incident report states authorities were called out to Northwoods Mall last night around 10 p.m. to investigate a shoplifting at Victoria Secret.

Employees told police Gibbs stole eight bottles of For Him 2, two bottles of Dream Angels Heavenly, and a bottle of Very Sexy Platinum. The combined total of the stolen items was $444.

The report states employees identified Gibbs by name, claiming she had been stealing times from the store for weeks.

Authorities say Gibbs was located at her home on Pinewalk Court, and bags of Victoria Secret merchandise could be seen when the suspect opened her door.

A search warrant for the home uncovered a number of stolen items from stores at Northwoods Mall and Tanger Outlet, including Old Navy, Charlotte Rousse, Justice, Claire's, Arizona, Children's Place, and Adidas.

Gibbs is being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.
