A woman is jailed in Cleveland County for allegedly playing a role in a theft of jewelry, cash and electronics worth thousands of dollars.

Approximately $63,000 worth of items were stolen, and in a twist, the own victim's daughter landed in jail for her alleged role in the crime. She's since bonded out and deputies now need the public's help to put all the pieces together.

Sheriff's Deputies say 32-year-old Jessica Clark played a part in the burglary of her parents' home on the 7000 block of Pleasant Valley Dr. They say she knowingly concealed stolen property. Clark got caught after a family member noticed her wearing one of the stolen rings.

Deputies arrested Clark and also found a backpack with almost $17,000 in $100 bills; her family has reported $20,000. In her car they found the victim's personal and legal documents that were also reported missing. She also has two oxycodone tablets on her.

Deputies are asking for anyone with information to come forward. They say there may be other suspects involved. They are also trying to find several other stolen items like additional jewelry, two flash screen TVs and video and audio equipment.
