ORLANDO, FL (WFLA) -

A SeaWorld worker is charged with grand theft after theme park employees say they saw her going through strollers, purses and bags belonging to park guests and surveillance video showed her using stolen credit cards.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies arrested Jimmy Lou Perry, 37, on Wednesday, WESH TV reported.

The investigation started when a SeaWorld guest reported a stolen purse to park security.

A SeaWorld official told WESH TV that Perry was seen going through park patrons' belongings outside of Shamu Stadium.

Deputies say SeaWorld has surveillance video showing Perry using stolen credit cards at an Orlando CiCi's Pizza.

Perry works at a food buffet inside the theme park.

She was released from the Orange County Jail after posting $5,000 bond.

Detectives say Perry could face additional charges.
