A burglar used a ladder to climb into a 60-year-old woman's bedroom window and steal about $32,000 worth of jewelry and cash Monday.

The victim told police she arrived at her home, in the 900 block of Heard Avenue, to find a ladder at her bedroom window, according to a Richmond County Sheriff's report.

The burglar had smashed the window, ransacked the home and stole numerous jewelry items, including a $2,000 gold bracelet and a $3,000 Bucherer watch. Sheriff's Lt. Tony Walden said it was the second burglar in that area recently and he has ordered crime scene technicians to examine the home.
