Jewelry up for grabs in Md. theft case

April 22, 2007 at 4:07 PM   |   Comments

BALTIMORE, April 22 (UPI) -- A court case in Maryland has both sides arguing how best to determine who truly owns nearly 1,000 stolen pieces of jewelry.

With no consensus determined regarding the jewelry's true owners, lawyers for the prosecution and defense in Anne Arundel County are struggling to argue where the items truly belong and what charges are accurate in the case, the Baltimore Sun reported Sunday.

The jewelry was initially seized from the home of Linda A. Kelley, a clerk at an area jewelry store, who admitted her involvement in a felony theft scheme.

Yet the former National Security Agency employee has not admitted guilt in the matter, and neither side has been able to determine the jewelry items' exact origins or value.

The entire situation arose back in June 2004, when the 51-year-old was arrested for shoplifting clothes later found to have jewelry hidden inside them.

An Anne Arundel County police spokesman told the Sun that with theft victims potentially coming forward at some point, the jewelry would not be auctioned off any time soon.
