A former jewelry-store worker in Texas has been charged with theft for allegedly taking jewelry from her employer and then pawning it.

Velvet Vargas, who worked at James Avery in San Antonio, is accused of stealing jewelry with a total value of nearly $18,000, mySanAntonio.com reports.

She’s been arrested and released on bond.

Between late 2017 and mid-2018, she allegedly took the jewelry to 17 pawn shops. Some of the pieces have been recovered.

An arrest affidavit states that in August a manager at the store saw Vargas wearing a bracelet that was “unaccounted for on her store records,” and police were called.

Police say Vargas, 20, has admitted to the theft.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
