The 32-year-old female was arrested and charged with theft over $2,500 and under $30,000. Investigators are currently interviewing other persons of interest that may have been involved in the burglary. Her identity has not yet been released. As of Tuesday afternoon $10,500 in stolen property had been recovered.
