Former nanny accused of stealing cameras has been let go from Tempe preschool

PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- A woman has been let go from a Tempe preschool, after she is accused of stealing from a home where she worked as a nanny.

According to police, Jamie Larson stole three cameras, three lenses, and a tripod from the home back in August. Records show the equipment was worth more than $2,600, and officer said she sold the items at a pawn shop for $100 in gas money.

Larson, according to officials, was fired as a nanny in October for lying, stealing cash from the home, and for substance abuse problems. She then worked at Mill Avenue Preschool in Tempe, and FOX 10 has learned from a lawyer for the preschool that Larson has been let go.

Larson, who was reportedly taken into custody on Monday, is facing two felony charges.
