EDEN, Md. - A Maryland man has been arrested for stealing a ring worth $4,000 at a home he was performing painting work at while the homeowner was away, authorities say.
According to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, the homeowner came home Sunday afternoon and found the ring missing from the top of her dresser in her bedroom.
