BOARDMAN

A 30-year-old Canfield woman will appear in Mahoning County Court in Boardman March 17 on a grand-theft charge.

Jamie Kohut, of Hood Drive, is accused of taking 97 pieces of gold and silver jewelry and an unspecified amount of cash from her previous employer, LeRoy’s Jewelers in the Southern Park Mall.

Boardman police said one of the pieces was found at a local pawn shop, but the other 96 have not been recovered.

A police report was filed Feb. 8 by managers at LeRoy’s Jewelers, who estimated $35,000 in jewelry and cash was missing from an internal theft traced back to July 2010.

Kohut turned herself in to police Thursday and was arraigned that day. She was released on her own recognizance in lieu of $5,000 bond.

In other Boardman area court business:

William M. Robinson, 18, and Tyron Rodney Perry, 19, both of Youngstown, were arraigned Tuesday and had bond set at $52,500. They each face charges of aggravated robbery and obstructing official business.

The two were arrested Thursday night on Erie Street after purportedly robbing a man at gunpoint on Maple Drive near Grover Drive earlier that day. They will be in court for a preliminary hearing March 29.

Covey K. Salinas, 23, of Youngstown, had his Tuesday hearing moved to Thursday. Salinas is charged with felonious assault in the October shooting of a 21-year-old Youngstown man at a Glenwood Avenue apartment.

As of Tuesday, Salinas was still in jail on $25,000 bond.
