Cincinnati—An Ohio FedEx employee is accused of pawning nearly $36,000 of jewelry parcels instead of delivering them, according to police.

The Cincinnati Police Department said Terry Hagood, 33, was arrested Dec. 10 on two counts of theft.

According to the arrest report, a complaint was initiated by a FedEx employee in regards to high value packages not reaching their destination.

Hagood allegedly was seen on the security cameras loading packages into the rear of the truck but never delivered them.

The jewelry, valued at nearly $36,000, was taken to Queen City Pawn, where he allegedly sold it for a fraction of the value.

The incidents occurred while Hagood worked at the FedEx facility on Paddock Road in Cincinnati.

He has pleaded not guilty and is set to face a judge.
