CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The concierge at Bratenahl Place condominiums pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Thursday to stealing over $200,000 worth of jewelry from residents.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley said between Sept. 8 and Oct. 8, Anthony Djurovic, 27, entered four different apartments while residents weren’t home and stole the jewelry.

“This defendant was hired to assist and protect the residents of Bratenahl Place,” said Prosecutor O’Malley. “He violated and exploited that trust by committing multiple burglaries in their homes.”

Djurovic and James Rigby, 22, then sold the jewelry to numerous nearby pawn shops, according to Prosecutor O’Malley.
