Last Updated: 426 days ago
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - An elderly woman who was asked to pay for her own stolen jewelry is expected to testify against one of the men who took it from her home in the first place.
82-year-old Marjorie Mahan's jewelry was stolen from her home and then found at a pawn shop in East Bakersfield last month.
The owner of the pawn shop demanded seven hundred dollars for the items, which is permitted by state law.
After hearing her story, a viewer paid for the women's jewelry, no questions asked.
Now Mahan is expected to testify today against one of the three people arrested for breaking into her home, 32-year-old Jesus Bustros.
Bustros is facing two charges of first degree burglary.
