Housekeeper arrested in theft  

 Kenner - On Wednesday, November 19, 2014, the Kenner Police Department arrested Nixirela Rodriguez, 37, of 3704 Diane Place, in Metairie.   Rodriguez was arrested and charged with the crime of felony theft in excess of $25,000.00.  

 The investigation began Monday, November 17, 2014, when the victim reported jewelry in excess of $25,000.00 missing from a safe located within her residence in Kenner.  The victim believed her housekeeper who she employed since September 2013, was responsible for the theft.  The victim suspected Rodriguez after discovering a key missing to her safe.  In addition, Rodriguez had access to every room in the residence, and had been texting excuses on why she could not come to work. 

 An investigation revealed that Rodriguez had been pawning jewelry from September 9, 2013 thru October 7, 2014.  Some of the items pawned were found to belong to the 71 year old victim.  Detectives interviewed Rodriguez who admitted to taking the safe key, throwing it away, and pawing property.  The investigation also revealed Rodriguez is a self-employed housekeeper, and cleans numerous residences in the Metropolitan area. 

 At the time of this press release, Rodriguez remains in custody, no bond has been set.  

 Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning Nixirela Rodriguez, or believes they were a victim of a similar theft to call the Kenner Police Detective Trey Hille at (504) 712-2213, or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
