Police: Maid arrested after "cleaning houses"
DOVER, Del. - December 6, 2011 (WPVI) -- Delaware State Police detectives have arrested a maid and her boyfriend after several homes were burglarized in the area.
After a two month investigation, 25 year old Tina Creed and 26 year old John J. Kossman were arrested on burglary and related offenses.
Police were able to identify Creed as an employee of Superior Maids Cleaning Service in Felton, Delaware.
Creed serviced several houses in Felton, Camden, Milton, Dover and Frederica, Delaware.
Investigators learned that Creed while cleaning the homes would remove jewelry and other personal items.
She along with her boyfriend Kossman, would sell the items to local pawn shops.
A search of the defandant's home also revealed items linking the two to the thefts.
Creed was arraigned and released after posting bail.
Kossman was committed to the Dept. of Corrections after failing to post $6,000 bail.
Detectives want anyone who may have hired Superior Maids Cleaning Service and have found items missing to contact Cpl. Shawn Doherty in the Property Crimes Unit at Troop 3 at 1-302-741-2817.
