Police have arrested a man who worked with a juvenile to steal thousand of dollars in jewelry from a home earlier this month, officials said.
David A. Loven, 24, of 225 N. Northampton St., Bangor, and a 17-year-old boy took more than $10,000 in gold and silver jewelry from the apartment of Vivian Ather, 15 S. Main St., Bangor, Northampton Co., on Oct. 4, officials said.
The robbery was reported by Ather last Wednesday, after she returned home to find the back door to her apartment open and her dogs outside, officials said. Ather's daughters told her that two 17-year-old boys were at the apartment that day and the day before, despite Ather telling them they were not welcome there, officials added.
After police found the boys and held them for trespassing, one of them admitted that he brought Loven to the Ather's apartment on Oct. 4 when she was not at home and that he and Loven took the jewelry, which Loven intended to sell at pawn shops, officials said.
The boy's mother found several pieces of Ather's jewelry inside their home and gave them to police, who returned them to Ather, officials said.
Loven was arraigned on charges of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and corruption of minors and committed to Northampton County Prison on $30,000 bail, according to court documents.
A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Oct. 22.
