Neighbor stole jewelry while elderly woman was hospitalized, Pasco deputies say

Neighbor charged in $1,300 jewelry theft

HOLIDAY — A 38-year-old woman is accused of stealing her elderly neighbor's jewelry — including her wedding ring — while the woman was hospitalized.

Sheri Lynn Noles was given a key to the woman's house so she could get clothes for the 89-year-old and bring them to the hospital for her. But while Noles was there, authorities say, she helped herself to more than $1,300 worth of rings and necklaces. The victim was hospitalized in December and noticed the missing items when she was released and returned home in February.

Noles, of Holiday, was arrested Wednesday and charged with grand theft and two counts of dealing in stolen property.

The jewelry was pawned, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. The victim, who turns 90 next week, told the Times on Thursday that she got a few items back, but the important things, like her wedding band, weren't recovered.

Noles is being held at the Pasco jail in lieu of $7,000 bail.
