Astonishing story. People should secure their valuables like jewelry.
Sheesh, how about supervisisng your house cleaners, with other recent stories of crime?
These women were pretty brazen and did a lot of theft - pretty systematic, it seems.
Thanks to the police (probably multiple jurisdictions?) for sorting all this out.

I don't think it's fair to be suspicious of your housekeepers. None of the recent thefts I've read about here have been by household help. I mean, if you want to supervise everyone you let into your life, that's your business, but it does not show respect.
My parents' home was burglarized when I was a kid and lots of stuff was taken, not just portable jewelry but Persian rugs and other furniture. Having photos of all the valuable possessions in your home is crucial to recovering stolen items, because the burglar may have sold them off already, so you may not be so lucky as to have the police discover a treasure trove in the thief's home. The reality is you can't put all your possessions under lock and key, other than the exterior doors and windows. Luckily in our case, the thief was discovered to live a couple of houses away and he jumped back fences to access several nearby properties. I think he may have been ID'd when he tried to sell stolen property.
