WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A Wichita Falls woman who bonded out of jail Sunday, after police say she was using a secret compartment in her purse to shoplift, was arrested Monday on new charges.
Dorothy Gibson is charged with theft, failure to give an officer her real name and violation of a gang injunction court order.
On Saturday, police were called to Kohls on Call Field about a shoplifter. Police say Gibson was detained by store security outside the store.
They say an examination of her purse revealed an opening to a hidden compartment that had clothing items worth more than $200 inside.
After bonding out of jail on Sunday, she was re-arrested Monday on Old Iowa Park Road about 2:30 a.m. when police stopped a Nissan with license plates that were registered to a Chevy Impala.
Officers say she was a passenger and gave them a false name.
An officer said he recognized her as a known gang member with an injunction preventing her from being in that area of town and was also banned her from being out past 9 p.m.
In July, officers arrested her on Monroe leaving a known drug activity area after they say she kept trying to put something in her mouth.
Police say while trying to restrain her, she was able to toss a small baggie in her mouth and swallow it.
Since 2008, records show arrests for burglary, thefts and resisting arrest.
