Hashini Ratnayake had taken custody of the stock of jewellery in 2016 while she was employed at the pawning centre of the state bank in Tangalle.
Two persons from Tangalle had pawned these items of jewellery, which they had later redeemed several months later.
However, upon inspection they had said that the jewellery given to them was not what they had pawned.
The duo had then lodged a complaint at the Tangalle Police regarding this matter.
By then Hashini Ratnayake was employed at a bank in the Kiribathgoda area. She was summoned to the Tangalle Police to record a statement in this regard.
Thereafter she had reported to the Tangalle Police station last afternoon where she was arrested, produced in Court and later remanded.
Hashini Ratnayake is the wife of veteran singer Victor Ratnayake.
