WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A grand jury indicted former Niles chef Daimer Cescon Thursday on theft charges after a police investigation alleged he stole over $40,000 in jewelry.

Cescon, 44, used to be the chef at D’Vino’s restaurant in Niles. Police said he admitted to stealing over $40,000 in jewelry from a couple in Kinsman with whom he was staying after D’Vino’s had to close.

The grand jury indicted Cescon on two charges of theft from a person in a protected class and one charge of grand theft.

Cescon’s pre-trial is set for Feb. 25 at 8:30 a.m.

The Trumbull County Sheriff recovered an $18,000 diamond Cescon sold to a store in Boardman. Cescon told investigators he sold a second diamond worth $12,000 to a different diamond store in Boardman.
