A woman sold two 22-karat gold bracelets that were stolen in Lehigh County four months ago, officials said.

Laura R. Ginnovan sold one of the bracelets for $840 to the Two Rivers Trading Post, 50 Centre Square, Easton, on Oct. 28, 2012, and the second for $833 to the same shop the next day, officials said.

Receipts from the pawn shop showed Ginnovan as the seller of the bracelets, which were reported stolen to police in Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co., by Ramesh Venkata on Oct. 26, 2012, officials said.

Ginnovan, 24, of 1537 Washington St., Easton, was arraigned Tuesday night on a charge of receiving stolen property and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $1,500 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9:30 a.m. March 7.
