Maj. Michael Scott said the burglary happened about 6 p.m. Sept. 28, when the owner got home and discovered the back door had been kicked in.

The burglar went straight for the jewelry box.

“One was her wedding ring, which she said was $10,000, a necklace with a cross, which she said was about $3,000,” Scott said. “A blue topaz ring, that was about $850 on that and pearl earrings that were $1,500.”

The home is located in a rural corner about 2 miles north of the center of town. Nothing else was stolen from the home.

Scott points out that there are few home burglaries in Tuttle, and it’s rare to have that much money in property taken.

Scott said it will be difficult to figure out where the jewelry will end up.

“A lot of times when items like this are stolen, they don’t go straight to pawn shops,” he said. “A lot of times they get traded straight for drugs or other items like that. They could also get mailed off to a cash or gold type of place.”

Police are working with the victim to get a picture of the stolen jewelry to share on their social media page in hopes of getting it back.
