BELTON — A Temple woman hired a cleaning service for her home, and later found her wedding ring was missing.

The ring was last seen March 25, and it was later discovered Kelsey Michelle Deckler may have taken the ring appraised at $6,095.

Deckler was indicted Wednesday for the alleged theft of property $2,500 or more but less than $30,000.

She allegedly pawned the ring the same day at First Cash Pawn, and it was found by the Temple Police Department officer investigating the felony theft, an affidavit said. The owner identified the ring.

She needed money was the reason Deckler gave for stealing the ring.

Bell County Justice of the Peace David Barfield issued the warrant on April 24.

Deckler was charged with theft of property $2,500 or more but less than $30,000.

She posted bonds April 27 that totaled $11,500, Bell County Chief Deputy Chuck Cox said Thursday.
