A cleaning woman accused of stealing a $20,000 necklace from a client will face a preliminary hearing next week.

Sewickley Heights police charged Jessica Gale Cox, 28, of Coraopolis with theft and receiving stolen property.

Dana Fields told police she believed Cox, who she recently hired to clean her home on Scaife Road, stole the necklace from purse in her dressing room sometime between Nov. 14 and Nov. 17, according to a complaint filed against Cox.

Police investigating the theft checked with pawn shops, including Banner Coin Exchange in Downtown Pittsburgh. An employee recognized a photograph of the necklace and told police he bought it from Cox on Nov. 17 for $225 and gave an officer a copy of the transaction.

Police arrested Cox on Nov. 23. She is being held in lieu of a $25,000 bond at Allegheny County Jail and has a hearing scheduled Tuesday before District Judge Robert Ford, according to court records.
