RING THEFT: Suspect Turns Herself In To Police


A Des Moines woman is in the Polk County Jail on a charge of theft after police say she took a diamond ring a traveler had set down at the Des Moines Airport last week.

Police released video of the theft last Friday, hoping someone would be able to identify the woman who took Stephanie Yurash’s ring. Yurash, of Los Angeles, was in the Des Moines International Airport last Monday when she took off her .7 carat marquise-cut diamond ring and put it on the table. As Yurash gathered up her items to leave, she forgot the ring.

Officials say 51-year-old Tina Cram watched Yurash leave and then took the ring. She contacted police Friday and made arrangements to turn herself in. She was booked into the Polk County Jail Monday morning on a charge of 2nd degree theft. She’s being held on a $5,000 bond.

Police say Cram told them she planned to keep the ring.
