A man and woman took a cab to a suburban Boca Raton home and then broke in, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Now both are in custody.

Surveillance video showed the pair arrive at the residence in the Mission Bay area March 11, investigators said.

The woman checked the mailbox and then walked with the man to the back of the home, smashed a rear-door window, and stole jewelry and other items, the sheriff's office said.

Detectives arrested 34-year-old Marcos Salas of unincorporated Boca Raton. They say he admitted involvement.

Salas appeared in court Tuesday on charges of burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief charges.

His bond was set at $56,000.

PBSO announced the arrest of 33-year-old Laura Holliday Thursday morning.

It said detectives with the help of Margate police took her into custody and she gave a full confession.

Holliday is currently being held in the Broward County Jail, the sheriff's office said.

The stolen property was recovered and will be returned, the agency said.
