Springdale Woman Allegedly Stole Necklace, Check, Cash From Uncle
Local deputies caught up to a Springdale woman Wednesday after they say she stole more than $1,000 worth of jewelry and cash from her uncle, along with $300 from a forged check in December.
Kayla Parker, 21, was arrested on suspicion of forgery and theft of property. She was released Wednesday from the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bond.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office drew up an arrest warrant last week for Parker after responding to a forgery and theft call in December. Parker’s uncle told investigators he noticed a check missing from his checkbook. When a copy of the check was recovered, it showed $300 written out to Parker, according to an arrest warrant affidavit from the Washington County Circuit Clerk’s Office.
The man also told deputies Parker was in his home the previous month cleaning. He later noticed about $950 worth of jewelry missing from his home, along with $500 in cash, the affidavit states.
A Sheriff’s Office investigator matched the description of the stolen property with a necklace that had recently been pawned. Pawn shop records showed Parker pawned the necklace in late November, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
