Man Accused of Stealing Class Ring From Dad

A Milwaukee man is accused of stealing the ring and other jewelry items from his family.

A 26-year-old Milwaukee man is accused of stealing jewelry from his parents and relatives and selling it to jewelry stores in Greenfield and West Allis.

Timothy J. Maas was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Monday with one count of theft. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Nov. 7, Maas went to Robert Haack Diamonds to sell a 1979 class ring he said had belonged to his dead father. He got $180 for the ring; however, a store employee was suspicious about the transaction and contacted the Greenfield Police Department.

Officers contacted Maas’ father, who said the ring had gone missing from his nightstand. Maas was interviewed by officers and admitted to the theft.

During the course of the investigation, officers found Maas had sold items on 16 different occasions to Robert Haack and The Jewelry Store in West Allis between Sept. 18 and Nov. 19. Officers recovered the items and found they had been taken from Maas’ family members.

Maas will make his initial appearance in court Thursday.

How could a child do that from his own family members? The stuff you see nowadays is just ridiculous.
