A Lenoir City man was arrested Dec. 30 after selling a stolen ring at a Cash for Gold store.

The ring was one of several items of jewelry, totaling over $30,000, taken Nov. 17 from a Loudon residence.

After originally investigating the theft when reported Nov. 30, Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kevin Kirkland noticed the sale Dec. 28 while using LeadsOnline. The victim confirmed the ring was the one that had been stolen and purchased it back from the store.

Colin Jay Winters, 40, sold the ring to the store. He was identified as an employee of a window cleaning company that the homeowner hired Nov. 17. As part of the job, Winters had access to the master bedroom where the jewelry had been located.

Winters was charged with theft of property and released on $10,000 bond.

Dispute leads to arrest

A Lenoir City man is facing two assault charges after a dispute with a former employer.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Teddy Scarbrough responded to a call Jan. 5 by a man who was in an argument with Fransisco Antonio Ruiz Antunez, a former employee. The man said Ruiz Antunez threatened him with an air gun while asking for money he believed he was owed and later picked up a hammer.

The man said Ruiz Antunez attempted to knock a phone out of the man’s hand to prevent him from calling law enforcement.

A witness said he saw Ruiz Antunez threaten the man with the hammer and draw it back as if to strike him. The man had previously filed a report with Lenoir City Police Department on Jan. 1 claiming Ruiz Antunez had threatened him.

Ruiz Antunez was charged with aggravated assault and domestic assault and held on $12,000 bond.
