Theft by taking

On Saturday, deputies were dispatched in reference to a theft report. Upon arrival deputies made contact with the complainant.

She said that a yellow gold wedding band that had belonged to her grandfather, her yellow gold wedding ring, and a diamond cluster ring, which is missing a diamond, were missing.
