A Charleston couple is accused of going into homes that were up for sale and stealing jewelry and other valuables.
A criminal complaint in Kanawha County Magistrate Court says the Ramseys pretended to be potential homebuyers and attended two open houses in the Kanawha City section of Charleston. One homeowner told police she noticed several pieces missing from a jewelry box, and another homeowner had reported a gun and laptop computer stolen.
Tonya Ramsey was arrested and released Tuesday from the South Central Regional Jail. It wasn't immediately known whether she has an attorney.
