A former department store employee is facing charges for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars worth of rings from the store at which she worked.

Tara Cheri Armstrong, 20, is charged with aggregate theft. According to court documents, Armstrong stole seven rings from the Kohl's Department store at 7103 E. FM 1960 in Humble between the dates of November 14 and November 21, 2011.

Harris County deputies were told by the store's loss prevention agent that they had surveillance video of Armstrong stealing the rings, which are valued at just shy of $21,000.

Court documents go on to say that Armstrong admitted to the thefts in a written statement, saying that her boyfriend/drug dealer told her to steal them.

Armstrong was fired. Bail in her case is set at $40,000.
