Comcast Repairman Charged With Stealing Jewelry From Customers, Including Cancer Patient

A Comcast technician in Georgia was charged with stealing from his customers homes when he went to make repairs, including jewelry from a recovering cancer patient.

WSBTV reports that police say that he made thousands selling both Comcast equipment and jewelry stolen from customers to local pawn shops.

The police investigation started after Comcast reached out to them help them snag an employee they believed was stealing thousands of dollars of worth of equipment.

WSBTV found that the tech had six warrants out for him at the time of his arrest.

Police were able to recover the cancer patients jewelry. But, she might never be able to regain the trust in others she lost.
