Man Steals $8,750 worth of rings from ex-girlfriend
- According to the criminal complaint, Randell Weaver, 53, of Boardman, Ohio was accused of stealing rings from his ex-girlfriend. Weaver lived with the victim in Mercer County in 2014. During this time, the victim had moved several of her belongings to the residence of Weaver’s mother in Little Beaver Township, including eighteen of her rings which are valued at $8,750. The rings consisted of diamond/gold, yellow gold, sapphire, emerald, ruby, tanzanite and citrine. Following their breakup in early 2015, Weaver’s ex-girlfriend discovered that the rings were missing from the residence of the defendant’s mother. After confronting Weaver several times, he finally admitted to pawning some of the rings and promised to give them back to her, which he never did. Investigating officers contacted a jewelry store and spoke with its sales representative, who provided evidence that the defendant appeared at the store on Dec. 20 of 2014 and sold eighteen women’s rings for $1,000. The defendant was charged with theft and receiving stolen property. Due to the value of the rings, the offenses are third degree felonies.
