Zachary Gillman, 32, was hired to watch the family’s pets while they were on a trip for several days, officials said.

When the family returned on Dec. 22, 2022, they found several pieces of jewelry missing.

An investigation began that eventually led to the finding of several social media posts by Gillman showing his girlfriend, Cheyenne Wheeling, 27, wearing the stolen jewelry.

Gillman was also found to have tried to pawn the stolen jewelry.

The couple was arrested and each is facing charges of first-degree burglary and grand theft, according to the sheriff’s office.
