Two suspects have been arrested for tying to pawn stolen jewelry.

GROSSE POINTE, Mich. -

Two people have been charged in what police are calling a million dollar jewelry heist from a Grosse Pointe home.

According to police, the break-in happened at a residence on Lincoln Street over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Dozens of items were taken, including diamond and pearl necklaces and bracelets.

The homeowner valued the jewelry at about $1 million.

Several of the stolen items turned up at pawn shops in the area. Police said they arrested the man and woman as they tried to cash a check from one of the pawn shops that accepted stolen items.

During a court appearance Thursday, the woman told the judge she had never been in legal trouble prior to her arrest in this case.

When asked by the judge if she had a drug problem, the woman said no.

As part of the investigation police raided homes in Harper Woods and Detroit, where they found more of the stolen jewelry and drugs.
