NEW PORT RICHEY — A cleaning lady is accused of taking a collectible doll worth $3,000 from a client's home.
Deborah Ann Jelicks, 40, admitted to deputies that she took the Hummel doll this month, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. She returned the doll to deputies.
Jelicks of 7525 Mallard St. was arrested Thursday and charged with grand theft. She remains at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $500 bail.
In addition to working as a cleaning lady, Jelicks completed training in August to serve as a substitute teacher for Pasco schools. After the arrest, the district temporarily removed her from the substitute pool, and will revisit her status after the criminal charges are resolved, human resources director Renee Sedlack said.
