An Akron woman is behind bars for allegedly taking her friend's jewelry valued at over $12,000.
News Channel 5 reports 33-year-old Carrie Henderson is facing theft charges after she admitted to Akron Police she took the woman's jewelry.
Henderson served as a caretaker for a 71-year old woman who returned to her home Tuesday after spending time in the hospital.
When the elderly woman came back home, she found four rings missing out of her jewelry box. The woman said Henderson spent all of her time in the living room where the jewelry box was located and told police that she was the only one who could have taken her rings.
Akron Police went to Henderson's home on Kling street to ask her about the stolen jewelry and during the interview, she admitted to stealing the rings and pawned them so she could pay her rent.
Henderson was charged with theft and was booked into the Summit County Jail.
