The woman believed to have stolen more than $100,000 worth of merchandise from Victoria's Secret and Sephora stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire has had her arraignment postponed.

Jennifer Santos, 27, of 57 Cedar St., Lawrence, was charged Friday in connection with a series of shoplifting incidents at the Northshore Mall in Peabody. She was supposed to be arraigned on Monday but Peabody police said her court appearance was postponed because she was scheduled for surgery at Lahey Clinic in Burlington.

Police said previously they believed the Northshore Mall thefts were linked to similar thefts at the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem, N.H. Salem Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten confirmed Friday that Santos is the suspect in the Salem thefts as well.

Patten said Monday that Salem, N.H. police do not have any charges as of yet, but Salem detectives are currently working on putting a case together. There were also additional shoplifting thefts elsewhere in Massachusetts that police said Santos was suspected in.

There is no word yet on when Santos might be arraigned on the Peabody charges.
