Heard Avenue burglar steals $32,000 in jewelry

  • Follow Latest News

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.

OK. This had to be someone

OK. This had to be someone that knew about these belongings. There is no way that a random burglar could be that lucky.

You might be right, fishman,

You might be right, fishman, but that's a pretty nice part of Heard Avenue. Any of the scumbags that ride through there would probably bet there was good stuff inside, even if they didn't know exactly what. I'm surprised there wasn't an alarm system on in this house. Or a nice, big, rottweiler roaming the house.

Does the homeowner have

Does the homeowner have domestic help who cleans her house, or has she had any repairs on the house lately, or any painting or improvements inside of the house lately, and who would know her schedule to know that she would not be at home at the time of the burglary? Shake those information trees and the hood-rat thug gangsta' will probably fall out.
