Valuable Property Recovered

The mystery of a missing $350,000 diamond ring in Florida has been solved. A house cleaner has been arrested and charged with grand theft after she allegedly sold the ring to a pawn shop for $4,800. She told police she needed the money to feed her children.

Cody Mejias, 26, was an employee of a cleaning service that cleaned the Stuart, Fla., home of Robert Hill and his wife on Dec. 21. The ring disappeared from the house and the couple were convinced that it was stolen and not lost, so they hired top Florida private investigator John Milano.

Milano said it was a failed polygraph test that led him to Mejias.
