MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) – Imagine taking your wedding ring to be cleaned only to find out weeks later it had been sold for cash.

Police arrested owner Charles Rodney Wilkerson earlier this week on charges of first degree theft of property.
Wilkerson allegedly took pieces of jewelry to be cleaned or repaired, but would then turn them over to pawn shops for short term loans to pay off his own debts.
Now, Ray Boone Jewelers’ Facebook page is filled with angry comments from other customers saying he owes them too…..
