R.I. police say bracelets stolen during manufacturing

State Police said more than $1,500 worth of trendy Alex and Ani bracelets were stolen and offered for sale on Craigslist. Colonel Steven O’Donnell said two Woonsocket men were arrested Thursday after unfinished bracelets that had not yet been sold to the public were spotted online for steep discounts. Police said they traced the 119 bracelets to a larceny at a plating manufacturer that was doing work for Alex and Ani, a Cranston-based jewelry maker. An employee of the company, Hector Bonilla, 26, was charged with larceny over $1,500. Manuel Pagan, 27, was charged with receiving stolen goods over $1,500.
