A woman who sold items stored in her home without permission has been indicted for felony theft.
The woman, Sandra Markum, was indicted by the Warren County grand jury on the charge of theft over $1,000 for disposing of items belonging to Jacqueline Myers.
The charges were taken out when Myers called Markum’s home on Donnell Street in order to pick up her items.
“When I called Sandra Markum said the items where sold and not to call back,” Myers swore in her warrant against Markum.
Myers called police to report the incident noting some of the items were irreplaceable family heirlooms. Included in the missing property was a hope chest that was over a century old, a computer desk, night tables and other items all totaling an estimated value of over $3,000.
It is not known why Markum allegedly sold the items without the owner’s permission.
