SAN ANTONIO A 26-year-old woman who was recently hired as a maid was arrested on charges of theft, police say.

According to a San Antonio police arrest warrant, Karleen Alvarez stole jewelry from a house that she and two other women with the Maid Brigade were hired to clean.

Alvarez is accused of having her husband sell the stolen item to a pawn shop, which is how police were able to track her down.

The cleaning service had already put Alvarez on suspension, pending it's own investigation.

Police said Alvarez denied any wrong doing.

Alvarez was booked into the Bexar County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
