BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Palm Beach County housekeeper has been arrested after authorities say she repeatedly stole jewelry from older clients' homes.
The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office reports that 25-year-old Karla Elvir of Boynton Beach is accused of stealing 28 pieces of jewelry and then taking them to pawn shops.
Deputies say the thefts took place between March and June, and Elvir received about $6,000 from the pawn shops.
She faces numerous charges, including theft, exploitation of the elderly, false verification of ownership and dealing stolen property.
