Burglary nets $113K

Key to safe discovered by thieves

by Glenn Wohltmann

Jewelry, cash and gold coins were among the estimated $113,100 reported stolen Tuesday from a home in the 1100 block of Hearst Drive, police reports said.

The jewelry had been kept in a safe but the key was discovered during the burglary, which occurred between noon and 8:15 p.m.

The homeowners left the house dark and the doors locked but noticed lights on when they came home and found their home had been ransacked.

Among the lengthy list of items stolen were a turquoise and diamond ring valued at $10,000; a 1.5 carat diamond ring valued at $10,000; an $8,000 necklace and earring set; gold coins worth $8,000; a $7,000 diamond bracelet; diamond earrings worth $6,500; a $6,000 gold bracelet; a diamond and gold necklace and earring set worth $5,000; three gold chains totaling $5,000; a $4,000 diamond ring; and $2,000 cash.

While there was no sign of forced entry, a broken key was discovered stuck in a decorative doorknob. Exit was apparently made through a bedroom sliding door. CharStyle:endbullet>n
