Summerville woman accused of stealing nearly $30k in jewelry

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston Police Department has arrested a 24-year-old Summerville woman accused of stealing nearly $30,000 worth of jewelry from a downtown apartment.

Investigators arrested Jessica Brittany Moore on Wednesday and charged her with grand larceny.

Moore's arrest stems from a Dec. 13, 2012 incident where police responded to an apartment on Bee Street in reference to a theft.

The victim said she noticed that two rings, a diamond band and a coach handbag were missing from her bedroom. Police say the victim realized the jewelry was missing after her roommate asked her if she had seen his camera.

The roommate told officers that someone had also stolen his $400 camera from its case which was located in his bedroom closet.

The female victim said Moore had stayed at the apartment on Dec. 10 and left the following day. Both of the victims said there were several instances where Moore was alone in the home.
