Burglar makes clean sweep of jewelry
May 16, 7:28 p.m., 6200 Block of 4th Ave NW -- A victim called police reporting that her home had been burglarized. The victim, who seems to have an impeccable inventory of her jewelry, listed the belongings that were missing: A Notre Dame class ring, a white gold sapphire ring, a sapphire ring with an aquamarine stone, two pearl necklaces, a Jakques Luman watch, gold earrings with jade earrings, and a platinum bracelet and ring set with sapphire and diamonds.
Police surmised that the burglar got in through the basement window, which had its latch damaged during forced entry and its screen window on the ground in the backyard. The police officer attempted to lift prints from the window but was unsuccessful. He left the victim a business card and follow-up forms.
