Orange County detectives say two women have been arrested who were posing as housekeepers in order to steal jewelry and cash from homes.


Police say Sandra and Marie Rojas, two women related by marriage, would follow actual housekeepers from home to home in Orange County and enter after they left. If no one was home, they called their male accomplices in, who would steal appliances, jewelry, cash and passports.


The group is reported to have stolen thousands of dollars worth of cash and valuables. After the women were arrested, police found evidence in a home in Riverside that links the women to additional burglaries in south Orange County.


Under California law, burglary is defined as entering a structure with the intent to steal or commit another felony. Burglary doesn’t specify how you enter the premises—you can forcibly enter or walk through an open door. Any burglary that involves a residence is considered first-degree burglary.  First-degree burglary is punishable by two to six years in state prison.


Burglary is different from robbery under state law in that robbery requires you to take something from another person by force or fear. Theft differs from burglary in that it involves taking property from anywhere except a structure. Burglary only applies to residences and commercial structures.
