Philadelphia Window Washer Replaces Jewels With Fakes: Police

Police searched for an employee of a Philadelphia window washing company who is accused of stealing $28,000 worth of jewels from two New Jersey homes.

Evesham police said a homeowner on Normandy Road reported jewelry was missing after Paul's Window Cleaning Service had worked there on July 7. The homeowner told police on July 12 she found her engagement ring in the driveway, but a jeweler had determined the center diamond had been replaced by an imitation diamond.

Police said they then linked the window cleaning company to an earlier jewelry theft along Riding Run Road

Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of 44-year-old Brandon Sanabria of Philadelphia. Sanabria has a criminal past and is listed as a Tier 3 sex offender convicted of rape in Pennsylvania.

Officers said the management of Paul's Cleaning Service has been extremely cooperative in the investigation and is not suspected in the case. The company suspended Sanabria indefinitely.
