Renter Accused of Stealing $30,000 in Cash, Jewelry from Milford Home

An Easton man is accused of stealing nearly $30,000 worth of cash and jewelry while renting a home in Milford and pawning the items.

Police said they received a report in December that money and jewelry were missing and have arrested 24-year-old Nicholas Bodine.

Police said he is accused of taking more than $28,000 worth of money and jewelry from the residence while living there as a renter.

Investigators found several of the missing pieces of jewelry at local pawn shops and Bodine has been charged with first-degree larceny.

He was held on a $50,000 bond to appear in Milford Court on April 12, 2017.
