Police have arrested a New Hampshire woman and charged her with stealing her own roommate’s wedding band and engagement ring and selling them off to a pawn shop, according to New York Post.
Yolanda Kennedy, of Nashua, was arrested Thursday on a charge of receiving stolen property. Police have indicated that the victim was indeed her own roommate. Even worse? Kennedy allegedly conducted these violating thefts just nine days before Christmas.
The victim had told police that she suspected her diamond engagement ring and wedding band set had been stolen from her home by someone she knew, within the previous month. It wasn’t long before authorities tracked down the items to a local pawn shop, as reported by New Hampshire Union Leader. That led them directly to Kennedy and the woman was promptly arrested.
The items have been recovered from the pawn shop and returned to their rightful owner. The pawn shop itself has not been identified.
Kennedy, whose age has not been provided, is facing a Class A felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a fine. She is being held in lieu of $300 cash bail or $5,000 personal recognizance bond, pending arraignment September 8 in 9th Circuit Court-District Division-Nashua.
It has not been reported if Kennedy has obtained legal counsel and, as New York Post has reported, her phone number is not in service. It has also not been noted if the two roommates are still living together, despite the alleged thefts.
