A 22-year-old Laurel woman was arrested Tuesday following a police investigation into stolen jewelry, Southold Town police said. 

Amanda Olsen was arrested at her Peconic Bay Boulevard home around 8 p.m. Tuesday on a felony third-degree grand larceny charge, police said.

Ms. Olsen, who has no prior arrests,  was released on her own recognizance from Southold Town Justice Court Wednesday after being held overnight at police headquarters. She is due back in court May 9.

Ms. Olsen was in the news in 2009 when she was shot in the head with projectile debris from a small-caliber rifle while sitting in a classroom at Mattituck High School.
