Once inside the residence the defendant stole jewelry valued at over fifteen thousand dollars. The defendant pawned a pearl necklace and a gold necklace on February 28th at South Shore Jewelers receiving one hundred and fifteen dollars. The victim positively identified both necklaces as belonging to her. The defendant signed a second hand dealers form which states that he is the rightful owner of the property that he is selling.
