VALPARAISO WOMAN CHARGED IN JEWELRY HEISTS
Jennifer Michelle Denney
A joint investigation by the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office and Niceville Police Department has led to the arrest of a Valparaiso woman on multiple counts of grand theft. 30-year old Jennifer Michelle Denney of 395 Whiteway Circle is charged by the OCSO with six counts of grand theft and six counts of dealing in stolen property. The Niceville Police Department has also charged Denney with one count of grand theft.
Investigator Bob Grappone says Denney stole more than thirty-thousand dollars in jewelry from various homes in Niceville and the Bluewater Bay area while working as a housecleaner last March and April. The majority of the jewelry, ranging from diamond rings to pearl necklaces, had been pawned at a local pawn shop and has been recovered.
Denney is currently in the Okaloosa County Jail in Crestview, awaiting first appearance.
