Jewel theft

Date: 1/2/2001

Jewel thief Keith Anthony McEwen deserves every day he spends in jail, says Rosemary Tarlton, widow of undersea adventurer Kelly Tarlton. McEwen was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison for the burglary on 8 April 2000 from the Tui ship museum at Waitangi. Mrs Tarlton believed her late husband spent 25 years hunting for and salvaging the treasure.
