An accused Johnson City mall shoplifter picked up a drug possession charge as she was arrested on Monday.

Tracy Nicole Beals, 27, 707 Hoover St., was charged with felony shoplifting and possession of a schedule III drug.

She was arrested about 4:30 p.m. Monday after police were called to JC Penney at the Mall at Johnson City to investigate a shoplifting complaint, police said in a news release.

According to the report, Beals attempted to conceal several items such as shoes, sandals, dresses, socks, necklaces and keychains in JC Penny bags. The items totaled $528. 

A search of Beals' belongings revealed a pill bottle containing five Suboxone pills and no prescription paper was attached, police said. 

Beals was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $6,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance today.
