Glen Rock police suspect that a nanny from Garfield who's charged with stealing $2,000 worth of electronics from her employers stole $18,500 worth of their jewelry, as well.
The Rutland Road homeowners had given Sarah Zughbi, 28, full access to the inside of the family home when they hired her to care for their children, Police Chief Dean Ackermann said.
Police who charged her with stealing $2,000 worth of electronics suspect that she also stole jewelry from the home over a two-month period and sold it a pawn shop, he said.
Zubhbi “remains a suspect in the theft of the jewelry but has not yet been charged with that offense,” the chief said.
Police believe she hocked the goods, he said.
Zughbi was released pending an April 12 hearing in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
