LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Investigators with the Lincoln Police Department have received more reports regarding a housekeeper believed to have stolen thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.

LPD said since Samantha Neeman's arrest, on Friday, May 8, they've received eight reports regarding stolen jewelry.

So far investigators have been able to connect four of those burglaries to Neeman.

Information on those cases have been forwarded to the Lancaster County Attorney's office for further determination.

LPD said this investigation is considered on-going. Neeman is facing felony theft by deception charges.

Last month, investigators said they received two reports from homeowners missing several pieces of jewelry. They told officers the only person who had access was their housekeeper, Neeman.

LPD checked Neeman's pawnshop history and found that she had pawned 29 pieces of jewelry in the last month.
