A New York University freshman from New Jersey is being sued for stealing approximately $50,000 worth of her roommate's high-end jewelry and accessories and selling it online.

Aurora Agapov, 19, in her lawsuit filed in New York Superior Court, accuses Kaitlyn Fung, 18, from Old Tappan of stealing the items from their dorm in Founders Hall after finding a notebook listing the missing items after they had been sold on the online luxury consignment shop The RealReal, which also has a brick-and-mortar location in Manhattan.

The items included an 18-karat ring worth nearly $24,000, a $3,300 Celine tote, a $4,000 Chanel handbag, a Bvlgari necklace that sold for $2,485 and designer clothing. Many of the items were sold at less than their value, according to the lawsuit.

Fung admitted to taking and selling the items when confronted by Agapov and showed her the items for sale on the RealReal website, the lawsuit claims. The next morning Agapov reported the thefts to the NYPD.
