Gangyuan Jin, 55, of 346 Foster Drive, Windham, CT has been charged with six counts of violation of precious metal/stone regulations, according to police.
He will appear in Rockville Superior Court July 25. His bond was set at $2,500.
Jin operates Park Avenue Jewelry, where police say he was receiving stolen jewelry in exchange for cash.
This arrest is the result of testimony by a woman arrested in connection with several burglaries in the Mansfield area who told police she sold jewelry to Jin, who never asked for information about where the jewelry came from, according to police.
Jin also allegedly did not keep required records for all transactions.
According to police, Jin was taken into custody without incident while working at the mall. He was arrested and charged on July 10.
