Someone won't be having breakfast at Tiffany's anytime soon!
And that someone would be a former vice president of product development at Tiffany & Co., Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, who was sentenced to a year and a day in prison this week.
This is the result of the 47-year-old ex VP pleading guilty to stealing $2 MILLION worth of jewelry from the company. Yep, you read that number right!! Pretty freakin' insane if you ask us!!
Gurl admitted guilt to one count of transporting 165 pieces of stolen jewelry, including bracelets, necklaces, and rings, across state lines, and admitted that she had begun stealing in 2005.
In addition to the prison time, Lenderhaas-Okun will be forced to forfeit $2.2 million and pay $1.2 million in restitution.
Dang! Was it really worth it?
We don't think so!!!
