SHERIDAN — Sheridan Police Department officers arrested Brooke Bass, 37, of Ranchester for felony larceny Thursday.

Bass was arrested for stealing a coveted family brooch from an elderly woman in Sheridan she had been employed by and taking care of as a certified nursing assistant. The brooch was valued at between $20,000-30,000 at last estimate.

Through investigation, the brooch was located in Billings on Thursday where it was being offered up for sale on consignment at a Billings jewelry store. The brooch was recovered with the assistance of the Billings Police Department and the jewelry store. It will soon be returned to its owner. A $10,000 cash bond was set for Bass Friday in Sheridan County Circuit Court and she is expected to have an initial hearing Monday.
