NASHUA, N.H. — Police have charged a woman’s roommate with stealing her diamond engagement ring and wedding band and selling them to a local pawnshop.

Police said they were contacted by the owner of the rings in December. They said she suspected they were taken by someone she knew.

Police investigated and recovered the items. They arrested Yolanda Kennedy, of Nashua, on Thursday on a charge of receiving stolen property. She’s scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 8. Police said she was the woman’s roommate.

It wasn’t immediately known if Kennedy had a lawyer, and a phone number for her was not in service.
