HOPKINTON — A Hope Valley man was charged last Tuesday with felony larceny after an investigation by local police about jewelry missing from a family member’s apartment.
Christopher L. Godfrey, 33, whose most recent address is listed as 1088 Main St., Apt. 1, faces charges of larceny over $1,500, a felony, and larceny under $1,500, a misdemeanor. He is also wanted on a warrant.
Hopkinton police were informed of the alleged theft of five pieces of jewelry from the home totaling more than $2,600, some of which was later sold to a Connecticut pawn shop.
Godfrey was arraigned in 4th Division District Court in Wakefield on Feb. 4, where he pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge. He is slated for a pretrial hearing on Feb. 18.
The felony larceny charge was transferred to Superior Court where Godfrey did not enter a plea. A felony screening date of March 18 has been set with members of the state attorney general’s office.
A no-contact order with family members was issued and he was released on a promise to appear for his upcoming court dates. Godfrey was also wanted by Coventry police department on charges of larceny under $1,500.
