COLUMBUS, GA — Two women from a cleaning crew were arrested and charged with burglary, possession of a firearm and possession of marijuana, according to WRBL-TV
After Yoshika McQueen and Bernice Miller, who worked for a Columbus cleaning service called the Maid Brigade
, were taken into custody, authorities found jewelry, rare coins, cash, a hand gun, digital cameras, cell phones and expensive watches stolen by the duo, the story stated.
Police are still looking for Maurice Jackson, an accomplice whom they say would burglarize homes that McQueen and Miller had recently cleaned, the story noted.
Harris county Sheriff Mike Jolley said: "Well, this should just teach people to be more aware of what''s going on. You''re going to still have people come in and clean your home, cut your grass, etc., but just be careful and keep an eye on your property."
The owner of the Maid Brigade notified police about the crimes that total nearly $60,000 worth of stolen goods, the story added.
