Three of five women sought in the theft of more than $4,000 in merchandise from a lingerie store have been taken into custody.

They were arrested by Jackson police on warrants in the Sept. 19 shoplifting spree at Victoria’s Secret in Edgewater Mall, Biloxi Police Major Christopher De Back said.

Arrested were parolee Tasonya Anderson, 40, and Ashley Showers and Tequila Jackson, both 34.

Jackson police are trying to find a fourth suspect who was identified as 21-year-old Keshanna Johnson. The fifth suspect’s identity is unknown at this time, De Back said.

The women were taken to the Harrison County jail on Tuesday.

Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set a $50,000 bond for each of them when he signed their arrest warrants.

Anderson is on parole for three felony shoplifting convictions from Rankin County, the state prison website shows. She served a portion of her prison term and has a flat time date of Jan. 4, 2021, when her supervision by the Mississippi Department of Corrections is to end.

Anderson is held with no bond on a warrant from the Mississippi State Parole Board. If her parole is revoked, she will go back to prison.
