SOUTH GULF COVE, Fla. - A Charlotte County detective arrested an Englewood man for selling stolen gold jewelry taken during a burglary from a South Gulf Cove home.

23-year-old Joshua Mark Frink of Englewood is charged with dealing in stolen property and false verification of ownership to pawnbroker.

Investigators received a call about a burglary at a home last month in the 8800 block of Claument Boulevard.  The thief broke a winidow and stole a $7,700 diamond engagement ring, a class ring and some gold charms.

Detectives located all four of the stolen items at Gold Pro’s in the Port Charlotte Town Center Mall. They were sold by Frink the same day as the burglary occurred. Gold Pro’s provided a copy of Frink’s photo identification and his thumb print verifying he was the rightful owner of the jewelry he was selling. 

Monday night at 11:22 p.m. a road deputy made a traffic stop on a 2012 Dodge car with the tag light out. The driver was Frink and a check with CCSO Communications revealed Frink had the open PCA for his arrest. He was arrested and taken to the Charlotte County Jail.  He is being held on $65,000 bond.
