Police arrest 2 on jewelry theft charges

Police in Montgomery County have arrested two people they say created a hoax to steal jewelry.

Officials arrested Megan McCormick and Jeff Ridenour Wednesday.

They say the two would pose as a husband and wife looking for a new home.

Once inside, police say the couple would find a way to get separated and root through jewelry boxes.

It happened at homes throughout Montgomery County, and authorities say the two stole more than $90,000.
