A housekeeper at a North Woodmere residence faces grand larceny charges after she stole $37,000 worth of jewelry from her employer and then resold it with an accomplice, Nassau County Fourth Squad detectives said.

From July 19 to Aug. 7, Nilda Toro, 34, of 101 Rockaway Ave. in Valley Stream, worked as a housekeeper at a Caldwell Avenue residence, police said. During that time, police said, she stole jewelry from the household and then sold it with Hector Espinoza, 36, of the same Rockaway Avenue address, to secondhand dealers in Nassau County.

Toro and Espinoza were arrested Thursday at their residence. Toro is charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property; Espinoza is charged with two counts of possession of stolen property, police said.

They are scheduled to be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
