HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) —  A pet sitter was arrested after it was revealed she stole and sold over $12,000 worth of jewelry. On May 8, Hoover Police responded to the 3800 block of James Hill Circle after the resident discovered several pieces of jewelry were missing. 

At the time there were no signs of the residence being burglarized, but the victim suspected her pet sitter was responsible for the theft. Detectives investigated and then made the discovery that the sitter sold the jewelry that matched the description of the victim’s missing belongings.  The jewelry was sold to a jewelry store in Birmingham.  The victim identified the items and Hoover Police obtained warrants for Jordan Elizabeth Rogers, 29, of Hoover, Alabama (pictured above).

Rogers is being charged with 2 counts of Receiving Stolen Property 1st Degree on a $20,000 bond. Rogers also received the charge of Receiving Stolen Property 2nd degree with a $10,000 bond. Altogether, Rogers was being held in the Jefferson County Jail on a $30,000.  She turned herself into the jail Monday but was released after posting bond.
