WOONSOCKET – The theft of more than $17,800 in assorted items of jewelry from a Glen Road home has resulted in felony charges against a 22-year-old city woman of breaking and entering, receiving stolen goods, and conspiracy, according to police.
Victoria Fusco, of Paradis Avenue, has been charged in connection with the Jan. 29 housebreak after police received information she was at her Paradis Avenue residence.
The charges stem from the theft of jewelry from several jewelry trees in the Glen Road home that were discovered missing by the owners after someone allegedly entered the residence through a downstairs window.
The missing items included a 5-carat diamond bracelet valued at $5,500, sapphire and diamond earrings valued at $2,500, a gold necklace valued at $3,000, and a 3-carat sapphire and diamond ring valued at $3,500, police said. A sum of $100 in cash was also reported to have been taken, police said.
Police arrested Fusco after hearing two women arguing loudly at the Paradis Avenue address when they arrived there to locate the suspect. A female occupant of a first-floor apartment told police Fusco was not at home but she was subsequently located in a bedroom on the second floor of the building.
An investigation into the disposal of the stolen goods is reported to be ongoing, according to police.
