The woman who stole a Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash and jewelry from pro boxer Jermall Charlo just caught a huge break … in part ’cause officials say she’s a pediatric nurse!!
TMZ Sports broke the story … Charlo was partying at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan last March when he got into a fight with another group of people … and left his bag unattended.
Sources say the bag had a $15,000 diamond bracelet, a $75,000 championship ring, a $10,000 Cartier ring and more in it … and held around $40,000 in cash as well.
A 40-year-old Connecticut woman, Sarah Morin, nabbed the bag … and after police asked the public for help identifying her — she turned herself in.
She was facing felony charges of grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property … but officials say they cut a deal with her on Thursday to let her off easy because the whole thing appeared to be a misunderstanding — and because she’s a nurse.
Officials say Morin was given the bag to watch by an associate of Charlo’s … and while she bolted from the club with the bag — she did return it and the jewelry … and appeared to try to do so even prior to being contacted by police.
Officials say even though no cash was returned … they were unable to verify if there was even any in the bag.
Officials also say her status as a pediatric nurse who works with children with cancer influenced their decision to let her walk with just a disorderly conduct charge.
Bottom line … as long as Sarah keeps her nose clean for a year — the case will be dismissed.
