November 30, 2009 Milton – The Milton Police Department announced Nov. 20 it had arrested two women — one accused of theft, the other of reporting a false Crime of theft.
She mentioned Voigt as a possible suspect because she was often at the house.
As part of the investigation, officers told the victim to check local pawn shops for the jewelry in the safe.
Sure enough, she found Voigt had allegedly pawned five of her rings Oct. 28 at Cherokee Coin and Pawn on Ga. 9 in Alpharetta — four days before the victim realized the safe was gone. Even more loot turned up at Roswell's The Vault Pawn Shop on Ga. 9, also allegedly sold by Voigt.
Milton police said all of the victim's jewelry, worth $14,200, was recovered.
Milton police said Nov. 2 Watson called 911 and allegedly reported someone had broken into her home, stealing a flat screen television, DVD player, diamond ring, diamond ear rings and Nike tennis shoes from her bedroom.
As part of the investigation, on Nov. 9 Watson's father told Milton detectives she had stolen his debit card on the day of the reported break-in and used it three times.
She reportedly told him she had used it to buy Oxycodone.
Her father told police he believed Watson had staged the break-in because of her addiction to prescription pain killers, according to investigators.
A Milton detective then tracked the diamond ring stolen from Watson's home to Cherokee Coin and Pawn in Alpharetta.
She had pawned it herself, said investigators. A warrant was then taken out for her arrest.
Voigt was charged with theft by receiving stolen property and theft by deception. She bailed out of the Fulton County Detention Center on a $23,000 bond Nov. 18, according to jail records.
Watson signed her own $1,000 bond and was released Nov. 19 from Fulton County Jail.
