From WPXI in Pittsburgh:

The family of one of the top players for the Pittsburgh Penguins fell victim to theft by someone whom they knowingly let into their home, authorities said.

Andrea Forsythe, 26, who worked as a nanny for Chris Kunitz and his family, has been charged with theft.

Police said Forsythe stole a pair of diamond earrings from the Kunitz’s Collier Township home and then sold them at a jewelry store in Robinson Township months later.
