Albemarle Police arrest man for theft from home where he was working

Monday, January 7, 2013 — A man has been arrested under felony larceny charges after Albemarle Police Department believed he may have stolen property from a home while working.

The man, Richard William Ujobagy, 20, was part of a crew that was working in and around a home in Albemarle.

“The victim noticed some jewelry was missing and officers arrived and spoke to men working,” Albemarle Police Chief William Halliburton said.

“Upon further investigation, officers found (Ujobagy) in possession of a gold necklace.”

Halliburton said the necklace held an approximate value of $250.

Ujobagy admitted to also taking two rings from the home, which he said were taken to Morgan Jewelers to be pawned for cash, according to Halliburton.

Halliburton said the department will seek to recover the rings and return them to the owner.

For pawning the rings, Ujobagy was charged with obtaining property by false pretense, but his charges didn’t end with the jewelry confession.

While officers were searching his car, police found a bottle of hydrocodone pills that was without a proper label.

Charges of trafficking opium were added to his arrest.
