Mississippi moving company employee charged with theft www.privateofficer.com
Mandeville LA Nov 19 2012 An employee of a Mississippi moving company has been arrested for allegedly stealing three rings valued at $4,000 from a client he recently relocated to Mandeville. The rings were recovered from a Biloxi, Miss., pawn shop, police said.
Thomas Jason Robinson, 32, of 13235 Rocky Mountain Drive in Biloxi, was booked with felony theft on Monday by Mandeville police. He confessed to stealing the rings, police spokesman Lt. Gerald Sticker said in a news release.
The investigation began when the victim reported to police that pieces of jewelry — two gold rings with diamonds and a silver ring — were missing after Mississippi-based Ace Moving and Storage moved him to Mandeville, Sticker said. Robinson was an employee of the company, he said.
Investigators recovered the rings from the unidentified pawn shop, whose records showed that Robinson had hocked the items, the release said.
Robinson was arrested in Mississippi on a Mandeville police warrant. He waived extradition and was booked into the parish jail in Covington.
Sticker reminded citizens to secure all valuables and do research on businesses and contractors before letting their employees onto your property.
