January 25, 1991

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ A woman has been charged with taking Christmas gifts from boxes she gift- wrapped at a local department store.

Angie Eileen Meadows, 19, was charged Thursday with embezzling jewelry.

″Can you imagine some guy giving a present to his wife and saying, ‘Here, honey, this represents everything I think of you,’ and the box is empty?″ said assistant prosecutor Fred DeMier. ″His eyes probably popped out.″

Meadows worked part time at the store until Dec. 21. Police said customers started calling the store to complain Christmas Eve.

″She couldn’t get away with it past Dec. 25,″ DeMier said.

DeMier said police had recovered 13 pieces of jewelry. All the victims have not shown up, he said.
