VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) -

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd said items inside a stolen safe were sold to a Jackson County pawn shop and the suspect accused of taking that safe was taken to jail.

Erica Davis Bell, 34, of the 12000 block of Paige Bayou Road in Vancleave was charged with grand larceny on Thursday.

The owner of the safe told deputies she believed Bell took her fire proof safe from her bedroom. An investigation revealed the suspect sold the items to a pawn shop. Those items were identified as the items from the safe, Byrd said.

Bell has had an initial appearance in Jackson County Court. Judge T. Larry Wilson set Bell's bail at $5,000.

This isn't bell's first arrest. According to Byrd, she was out on prior bail from January 7, 2013 for credit card fraud. Judge Wilson revoked Bell's prior bail.

If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
