Posted: Updated:

A Harrisburg woman is facing theft charges after police say she pawned jewelry she took while employed as a housekeeper at a Swatara Township hotel.

Alicia Chacon, 26, allegedly took a diamond engagement ring, a wedding band, and a Pandora bracelet from a guest's room, township police said.

The victim, a Philadelphia resident, had stayed at the hotel on March 8-9 and realized her jewelry was missing when she returned home. She remembered leaving the rings and bracelet on a desk in her room, but the hotel was unable to find them.

She estimated the total value of the jewelry to be $13,700, police said.

Police said they began an investigation and learned Chacon, the hotel employee who had cleaned the victim's room, had pawned jewelry matching that of the victim’s on March 10 in Lemoyne.

Chacon was charged with theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, and theft of lost or mislaid property.
