I guess thieves live everywhere including Palo Alto. Glad she was caught.

How long has she lived in Palo Alto? How long has she been a thief? Sounds like this is far from her first crime.

Uh, she shows up as Angelo Walker, age 45, depending on your search tools.

@musical - She also shows up as Angelo if you look at her mug shot. Free tip for the meth heads out there, when you rob someone, leave fake contact info, not your real contact info.

I sure hope he or she? was at least in a wig and makeup. Sorry but if that came in my shop asking to see $$$$ diamonds. I would refuse service. Or at least watch like a hawke and never leave unattended. To go to backroom and bring out more diamonds.

Was it the jewelery clerk's first day or something? How do you leave a ring with a meth head and go in the back room?
And falling for the old switch-aroo? Come on!
