BEDFORD, N.Y.— A 19-year-old woman was charged with stealing more than $4,000 worth of property from a woman whose children she was babysitting, according to Bedford police.
A resident of Hook Road reported two rings and an iPod Touch missing from her home on July 18, police said. She called again on July 30 to tell police she believed her babysitter had taken the items, police said.
