More than $10,000 in jewelry stolen from Ann Arbor woman's home during break-in
A 64-year-old Ann Arbor woman reported more than $10,000 in jewelry and a laptop stolen from her home after a break-in during the daytime hours Monday.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the woman returned home Monday morning from a weekend trip and left to go to work at 7 a.m. She returned to the house in the 2000 block of Audubon Drive at 6:30 p.m.
Bush said the woman discovered drawers had been pulled out throughout the home. A box containing her jewelry and a laptop were missing. The woman waited until Tuesday to report the home invasion to police.
During the investigation, police discovered the front door of the home had been accessed with some sort of hydraulic tool that forced the deadbolt open, Bush said. There was no damage done to the frame of the door.
The jewelry was worth more than $10,000, Bush said, and was likely a collection gathered over a lifetime.
There is no suspect description available. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police’s anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587)
