A Coralville woman has been charged after she allegedly stole more than $400 in rings from a local pawnshop.

Joyce Niederklopfer, 41, was charged with fourth-degree theft after she and another woman went to Money & More to reportedly pawn some rings.

The victim, according to an Iowa City police complaint, forgot her ID, and asked Niederklopfer to hold the rings until she came back. Niederklopfer then allegedly placed them in her pocket and told the victim when she returned that she had misplaced them.

A few days later, the victim found a receipt indicating that the rings were never lost and had actually been pawned for money, the complaint said.

Fourth-degree theft is a serious misdemeanor.
