2 p.m. — 600 block of Avenida del Norte. Burglary. A woman reported she was out of the house between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and had locked the house when she left. When she returned, she noticed someone had opened the rear bedroom window forcibly and removed jewelry from the top of her dresser. She estimated the total value of the missing items — a diamond-encrusted dress watch, a necklace with three pendants containing sapphires and diamonds and an heirloom ring with diamonds and onyx — at $5,800. She said she had no idea who would have taken the items. The deputy noted many other pieces of jewelry were on display and in the box where the women said the missing items had been kept. The deputy added, “It appeared the subject(s) had an eye for the expensive jewelry and left the inexpensive items behind.”
