A fourth woman is in custody on a felony shoplifting charge involving the theft of more than $4,000 in merchandise from Victoria’s Secret at Edgewater Mall.

Jackson resident KeShanna Laquality Johnson, 21, turned herself in at the Biloxi Police Department early Wednesday morning, Biloxi Police Maj. Christopher De Back said.

Johnson is one of five women sought in the Sept. 19 thefts. One unidentified suspect remains free, De Back said.

Johnson was booked at the Harrison County jail and was being held on a $50,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.

Also arrested are parolee Tasonya Anderson, 40, and Ashley Showers and Tequila Jackson, both 34. They were taken into custody in Forrest County and brought to the Harrison County jail Tuesday. They also each have a $50,000 bond.

Anderson is held with no bond on a parole warrant. At the time of her arrest, she was on parole for three felony shoplifting convictions from Rankin County. Her supervision as a parolee is set to end Jan. 4, 2021, the state prison website shows. If her parole is revoked, she could be sent back to prison.

Tips to Crime Stoppers and the work of other law enforcement agencies helped identify the four women, De Back said.

Anyone with information on the fifth suspect is asked to call the Biloxi Police Department at 228-392-0641, the department’s Criminal Investigations Division at 228-435-6112 or Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
