Housekeeper accused of stealing almost $20,000 from home

WEST, TX (KXXV) - Woodway police have arrested a 55-year-old woman accused of stealing about $20,000 from a home where her mother was working as a housekeeper.

Samantha Lee Chambers-Hindaoui has been charged with theft over $1,500, unlawfully carrying a weapon and two separate drug charges related to this incident. (She had also been listed as Samantha Lee Braswell)

Police say Chambers-Hindaoui had gone to the home to help her mother, and while she was there, she stole silver bars, gold coins, a large stamp collection, and guns, then apparently sold them.

During the investigation, the guns were recovered, but police say the other items appear to have been lost.

Police say that a Facebook tip led to them breaking the case.
