Upon being informed of what happened, officers began investigations to identify the person who could have stolen the jewelry, and during the course of the investigations, the police officers found out that the domestic employee, since October, had gone on several occasions to a second-hand trading establishment to sell objects that she had obviously previously seized in the home where she worked.
