WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — An East Hartford woman has been arrested after police say she stole nearly $40,000 worth of jewelry from a customer and pawned it.

West Hartford police say 33-year-old Kristina Cable of East Hartford worked for a dog sitting company out of Windsor and had a number of customers in West Hartford. Police say Cable was hired as a dog walker by a West Hartford family and jewelry went missing from the home. The jewelry was valued at $37,994.

Detectives determined that Cable, who they say has a lengthy pawn transaction record, took the jewelry from the home and pawned it. Police issued a warrant for Cable for first-degree larceny. She turned herself in to police on Thursday where she was released on $25,000 bond. She is due in court on April 28.

Police say they are still investigating other pawn transactions to see if there are additional victims.
