A diamond ring thief who was tracked down and held at gunpoint by the victim’s husband has pleaded guilty and been sentenced.
Jesse James Curet, 18, was charged with theft over $2,500 and sentenced to two years deferred probation. He was arrested last December after a car burglary in which the owner reported a $3,500 diamond wedding ring and an iPod were stolen.
Curet was arrested about two weeks later when police got a call about a gun being pulled at a restaurant, and when they arrived, they found him being held at gunpoint by the husband of the owner of the ring.
Police say Curet admitted entering unlocked cars in the Freedom Estates area and taking items.
At the time, police said the iPod was recovered but not the diamond ring.
