Paramus NJ Police Arrest Cleaning Woman Who Allegedly Stole Jewelry
Police said that the victim was robbed by 36-year-old Edira Durakovic. The victim hired Ms. Durakovic to clean his home after coming across an ad that she had posted on Craigslist.
While Ms. Durakovic performed her cleaning duties, the victim left the home for a short period of time. Later, the homeowner noticed several pieces of valuable jewelry missing from the master bedroom. Paramus NJ detectives then began an investigation into the incident and eventually tracked down a couple of the missing pieces of jewelry.
Ms. Durakovic has been charged with theft.
In New Jersey, theft of movable property is governed under N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3. The statute stipulates that theft of property valued at more than $500.00 can be classified as a second degree felony. If Ms. Durakovic is convicted of second degree theft, she faces a sentence of up to ten (10) years in state prison.
