FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) A woman faces six theft charges for stealing items worth more than $1,800 from her parents’ home and selling it to a pawn shop.

Sometime between December and January, Cherida Wright, 22, took a 10-inch Samsung computer tablet, and Apple iPod and a diamond engagement ring, according to an affidavit for probable cause filed at the Allen County Courthouse.

In late January, a Fort Wayne Police Department officer used an online lead website to discover that a gold diamond engagement right was sold to a pawn shop. Court documents identified the person who sold the item as Wright.

Days later, Wright returned to the pawn shop two different times to sell the iPod and the computer tablet.

Wright sold all three items for a total of $240.

The parents said they did not give Wright permission to take the property from their home. According to court documents, the parents said this was not the first time she had stolen from them and they did plan on pursuing criminal charges.
