79-year-old Lydia Perez Clem stole one of Theodore Washington III’s rings at Nail Time & Spa Inc on Highway 70 South on May 14th. Washington III reported taking off two rings next to the base light on the countertop where he sat while his hands were soaked. He stated that he was later moved to another chair and accidentally left his rings until he finished at the second chair. When Washington III returned, he discovered one of his rings had been stolen. Washington III then notified the spa about the theft. South Nail Time Spa let him review their camera footage. The footage showed Clem dropping something small a couple of times near where Washington III’s rings were before examining the small item in her hand, reaching down toward her purse on the right side of her chair, and pulling her empty hand back up. Washington III believed this was when Clem put what was later identified as his ring in her purse. The spa gave officers Clem’s information, and they went to her residence. Officers asked Clem if she would return the ring. Clem returned the ring to officers stating, “I feel bad. I should not have done that.” Washington III valued the ring between $5,000 to $8,000. Clem was taken into custody for theft on June 13th.
