DARIEN, CT (WFSB) -

A former Tiffany's executive from Connecticut is being accused of stealing more than $1.3 million worth of jewelry.

Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun was arrested at her home in Darien Tuesday night.

Prosecutors said she borrowed more than 160 pieces of jewelry and then sold the jewelry to an international dealer.

Lederhaas-Okun was let go from the company in February as a result of downsizing.
