‘You’ll pay for this!’
11 a.m. — 5500 block of Yorkshire Way.
Burglary. A woman reported someone broke into her house and stole more than 40 pieces of jewelry worth about $6,000. She immediately suspected a young neighbor who knocked on her door a few weeks earlier asking to use the phone. The homeowner refused, and the young woman warned, “You’ll pay for this.” A deputy was checking with neighbors to see if they’d seen anything. One neighbor said he hadn’t, but then asked the deputy to return. The man said his daughter had admitted to breaking in the woman’s home and stealing the jewelry. All of the stolen items were hidden in the neighbor’s attic.
