MILWAUKEE WI May 19 2012 - Authorities arrested a Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division security officer who they said stole a patient’s wedding ring.
Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputies said the 36-year-old victim reported the theft of a yellow gold ring inset with diamonds. Video in the intake area showed her placing a ring on her finger after a guard removed it from her purse.
Detectives searched pawn shop databases and located a transaction matching the description of the ring. The pawn shop provided a color photocopy of a Wisconsin ID of the man who sold the ring.
The ID belonged to a BHD security officer, Devin L. Lloyd, 21, of Milwaukee.
Deputies said Lloyd was the security officer who had written a report after the victim reported her ring missing, where he stated she had her property in her possession.
Detectives said Lloyd was arrested at his home on a misdemeanor charge of theft. If convicted, Lloyd faces up to nine months in jail, deputies said.
