A housekeeper from Brantford is facing theft and fraud charges, accused of stealing from her employer in Oakville.
Halton police say they were contacted by a woman who complained she had lost 20 thousand dollars worth of jewellery while a woman was cleaning her home between January and April of this year.

A search warrant conducted at a Brantford residence recovered many of the items obtained with the unlawful credit cards and a quantity of the stolen jewelry.
