Police have arrested a 34-year-old woman in connection with the theft of $50,000 worth of jewelry from a close friend's Bryn Mawr home.
Lower Merion Police Sgt. John Stillwagon said the suspect, West Chester resident Ann Gleeson, turned herself into police on Feb. 2 and was charged with the theft from the home on the 1100 block of Springmont Circle in Bryn Mawr.
The arrest culminates a nearly three-month investigation that began after the homeowner reported the theft on Oct. 10.
Police named Gleeson a suspect because she had been in the house around the time of the theft and was reportedly a family friend.
The theft was believed to have occurred between Oct. 2 and 7.
Gleeson was released on $10,000 bail, and was originally scheduled for a Feb. 9 hearing. Gleeson’s attorney waived the hearing, and she now faces a formal arraignment in Norristown on March 14.
