It is a criminal offense to take away the property of another with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property. If he had gone into her home without permission, taken the ring, and sold it immediately, that would be theft
. However, since she gave him permission to take the ring (even if not for that purpose), police would probably call it a civil matter and decline to prosecute. The fact that he used the ring to get a loan and was making payments to get it back also helps establish that he did not have the intent to permanently deprive her of the ring. A civil court
judge would definitely order him to repay her, but police would likely choose not to pursue it. They could
, but I just don't know that they would
. To prove a criminal case, you need to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and there's no evidence of criminal intent here.
