A cleaning lady has been arrested after police say she stole from at least one Longboat Key home in which she worked.

Officials were contacted back in December about some missing jewelry, wallet, and cash.

35-year old Michelle Wood initially denied any knowledge of the missing items, however, a number of the stolen pieces were later found at area pawn shops.

Wood later admitted to the crime, saying she had pawned nearly 100 pieces of jewelry since 2017.
