LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The owner of a consignment shop has been arrested on charges that she failed to pay people for items sold in her shop.

Anne C. Chism, 61, was arrested May 9 by St. Matthews police on seven counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of property.

According to the arrest report, Chism, owner of Clara Belle's Consignment Shop, took in items throughout 2013 for sale in her store. When the items were sold, Chism is accused of not paying the owners of the property their share of the sale.

The report also says Chism has since closed the business, but still has possession of items she took for sale.
