The alleged victim told police Cuomo began working as his maid in January 2012 and that he began to notice things missing in his home over time. These items included prescription medication, jewelry and cash, according to investigators. Police say they later learned Cuomo pawned items at a local pawn shop between April and June and that some of those items belonged to the victim.
