Prosecutors say Jennifer Santos is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on larceny and trespassing charges connected to thefts from Victoria’s Secret and Sephora fragrance stores in the Northshore Mall in Peabody.

According to court documents, the 28-year-old Lawrence woman is suspected of hitting stores at malls in Foxborough, Burlington, Chestnut Hill, Marlborough and Holyoke, Mass.; as well as malls in Concord, Salem, Nashua, Newington and Manchester, N.H.
