Police in Bedford, New Hampshire, say they've arrested a nursing home aide who allegedly stole multiple pieces of jewelry from residents.

They've charged 24-year-old Megan Lakos, of Londonderry, with two felony counts of theft and one misdemeanor.

Police responded to the nursing home in October about the missing items. They allege Lakos was taking them from residents' rooms and bringing them to a local pawn shop to sell. A warrant was issued for her arrest.

She's been released on $10,000 bail pending her appearance in court on Feb. 9.

It wasn't immediately known if Lakos had a lawyer who could speak on her behalf. A woman answering the phone at a listed number hung up Friday.
