Fire captain's neighbor jailed in jewelry theft
A 32-year-old woman is accused of stealing $5,464 in jewelry and other property from her neighbor, including a charm that reads, "I Love My Fireman."
Lorinda Stivers, 32, was arrested Thursday after her neighbor, Hillsborough Fire Rescue Captain Mark Lieberstein, reported a break-in to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Lieberstein told deputies he had been away from his home on Gateway Boulevard between July 5-8, when the burglary occurred.
According to an arrest report, Stivers later pawned the jewelry from Lieberstein's house for a total of $202.
Stivers, of 4553 Gateway Boulevard in Wesley Chapel, has been charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and grand theft. She remained Friday at Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $15,000 bail.
