BELLINGHAM -- A Ferndale carpet installer who stole and pawned a customer's expensive ring has been sentenced to three months in jail.
Superior Court Judge Chuck Snyder also ruled that 27-year-old Kenny Littrell must tell future customers that he needs extra supervision.
The Bellingham Herald reported that Littrell pleaded guilty last week to selling a 14-carat gold ring with a large emerald-cut diamond at a Bellingham pawn shop last July 10. That's the same day it was taken from an area home. Court records show he got $445 cash for the ring, which was valued at nearly $8,000.
Littrell had been laying carpet at the victim's house when two rings disappeared. He later claimed he must have lost the second ring, worth $1,500.
He was convicted of first-degree trafficking in stolen property.
