An East Bernstadt woman who admitted to police that she had been stealing jewelry from her employer has been charged with receiving stolen property.
London Police Detective-Sgt. Blaine Inman said Lisa S. Thompson, 51, admitted to police she had taken the jewelry over the course of about a year while working at the victim’s home.
“Rings, gold chains, bracelets, you name it,” Inman said. “It was several thousand dollars worth of jewelry.”
Inman said the victim, whom he declined to identify, contacted police Aug. 5 to report the missing jewelry. Police recovered some of the jewelry.
“She (Thompson) had sold most of it,” Inman said.
Thompson was charged with receiving stolen property under $10,000. Inman said additional charges may be filed.
Under Kentucky Law a person is guilty of receiving stolen property if he or she retains movable property of another person knowing or having reason to believe it is stolen.
“Receiving stolen property is easier to prove,” Inman said.
Inman said police do not believe anyone else is involved, but are continuing the investigation.
Under Kentucky Law, receiving stolen property is a class “D” felony punishable by up to one year in jail.
