Thousands of dollars worth of jewelry was taken in an afternoon burglary after a back door was forced open at a house on Hoyt St., about a quarter mile north of the street’s intersection with Woodway Road, police said.
A homeowner told police the burglary happened sometime between 2 and 7:15 p.m., on Friday, Dec. 30, when residents were gone. A back door leading into the kitchen was forced open, and when residents returned home, they saw items moved in the living room and a downstairs bedroom. The master bedroom upstairs was also ransacked.
This jewelry was stolen from the downstairs bedroom: an 18-karat gold link-style necklace valued at $2,000, a freshwater pearl bracelet with a 14-karat gold and black band, valued at $500, two Kate Spade watches, one gold and another silver, valued at a total of $600; an Anne Klein crystal bracelet valued at about $40. Residents hadn’t made a full inventory of missing items at the time of the available police report.
Police asked neighbors if anything suspicious had been seen or heard, but no information came from that effort.
