Prosecutors say they have charged a man suspected of stealing $25,000 in jewelry from Julie Newmar.

The actress who portrayed the first Catwoman on the "Batman" TV series in the 1960s spotted the pilfered jewelry for sale on eBay and alerted authorities.

That led Los Angeles prosecutors to charge 48-year-old Robert Ouriel with grand theft on Wednesday. He is due in court for arraignment Thursday.

Efforts to reach Ouriel for comment were unsuccessful.

He was arrested last month and remains free on $50,000 bail. Prosecutors say he was an acquaintance of Newmar's and allegedly sent the items to an Illinois pawn shop that listed them for sale online.
