David R. Blosser, 55, of Silvermine Avenue, surrendered to Fairfield police Saturday, Aug. 10, to face a warrant charging him with first-degree larceny.

Police said the owners of Midas Touch Jewelers, 1547 Post Road, told investigators that Blosser stole between $250,000 and $500,000 in cash and jewelry over the past two and one-half years.

The owner of Midas Touch contacted police May 30 to report the theft, saying Blosser was caught taking $1,100 in cash. When confronted, Blosser reportedly confessed to that theft, the owner told police.

Blosser had work for Midas Touch for 25 years, police said, before leaving for a job at a Stamford jewelry store.

Fairfield police said Blosser was terminated from that job for stealing jewelry and cash.

When Blosser lost the Stamford job, he returned to Midas Touch two and one-half years ago, seeking his old job. He was rehired.

Since his return, owners told police during the investigation, management at Midas Touch could not find some pieces of jewelry, but said it is a common practice for displays to be reorganized, sometimes by outside vendors. However, they now say that jewelry and loose diamonds, as well as petty cash, had been taken by Blosser.

Bond was $10,000 for court Aug. 21.
