Man Accused of Glendale Jewelry Theft Also Charged in Creve Coeur
Total value of items stolen in seven cases is $228,300, according to police reports.
An Ellisville man, already accused of theft-related crimes in Ladue, Crestwood and Glendale, now can add Creve Coeur to the list.
The owner had hired a gardening service to work on her residence at the time the rings were stolen, between May 24 and May 28. A detective discovered that Roux, who worked for the gardening service, had pawned the four rings.
The Creve Coeur detective was honored earlier for solving the case and locating much of the stolen jewelry.
Roux, of the 200 block of Clayton Oaks Drive in Ellisville, was charged last Wednesday with felony stealing, a class C felony.
He also faces criminal charges of stealing items valued at more than $200,000 in four thefts in Ladue; stealing items valued at $15,600 in Crestwood; and receiving stolen items valued at $5,000 in Glendale theft. All items stolen in each case were jewelry or Sterling silver.
Bail for the Creve Coeur theft was set at $10,000.
