things in other areas of the home while he was “checking for the problem” in their bedroom.

After telling the couple that he had fixed the problem, he left. At that time, the couple found that the top shelf of the family jewelry box had been cleared out of expensive and sentimental jewelry.

The couple called police and the suspect, 22-year-old Lequentin Randolph of Detroit, was pulled over in the cable truck.

He was arrested after a police officer saw two pieces of gold jewelry on the driver’s seat.  Later, police said they found the rest of the couple’s missing jewelry in a bag hidden behind a panel in the truck.

Bond has been set at $5,000 for Randolph who has been charged with felony larceny.

He’s set to appear in court on Monday for a preliminary exam.
