MARIETTA — A former Cobb real estate agent will spend eight years in jail after pleading guilty to stealing from homes that were on the market, according the county district attorney’s office.

Ray Glen Greene, 49, of Englewood, Fla., pleaded guilty Monday to eight counts of burglary and eight counts of theft by taking, said Kim Isaza, spokeswoman for Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds.

Investigators said Greene would use his agent keycode to access homes throughout metro Atlanta for the purpose of stealing jewelry and other items, Isaza said. She said one of the items stolen by Greene was a wedding band taken from the home of a Cobb police captain. The ring was recovered after it had been pawned, but not before the captain’s wife died unexpectedly of a brain aneurism, Isaza said.

Greene was sentenced to 20 years, with eight years to serve in custody. He was also ordered to pay $29,000 in restitution, most of which has already been paid, Isaza said. She said Green is required to surrender his real estate license and is not allowed to enter any house in which the homeowner is not present.
