LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shepherdsville Police say they've arrested an employee of Amazon who is accused of stealing over $100,000 in merchandise from her employer.

According to an arrest report, 45-year-old Angela M. Gibson was confronted by Amazon loss prevention officials Tuesday night after they caught her stealing merchandise. She allegedly admitted to taking the items, and Shepherdsville police were called.

When the officer arrived, Gibson allegedly admitted to stealing over $100,000 worth of merchandise over the past two years, and storing it in her garage at her home on Colyer Lane, near Deatsville Road and Cedar Grove Road.

Police say Gibson agreed to accompany officers to her home to recover the property. When they arrived, Gibson's boyfriend was there and signed a consent form to allow officers to search the garage, according to the arrest report. Inside, officers allegedly found boxes of stolen property "which filled up half of a one-car side of the garage," police say.

Gibson was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking. She is currently housed in the Bullitt County Detention Center.
