A health care provider is found guilty of stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from residents of a local retirement community and is sentenced in court today.

Tammy Crump, also known as Tammy Sigala, pleaded guilty to theft over $1500 and under $20,000.

She's sentenced to 10 years deferred adjudication and will also have to pay restitution to the victim.

Police say a resident of Rolling Meadows reported jewelry was stolen from her room, including topaz, gold, diamond rings, and gold earrings, valued at almost $10,000.

Police obtained a list of health employees at the home and then checked the precious metals sales log and found that Crump had sold similar items to Beverly Gold Exchange shortly after they were taken.

Officers say Crump was questioned and admitted taking the items, and also items from another resident.
