Burglary Occurs While Homeowner is at Home
One man kept the homeowner occupied while the other raided her jewelry box.
One man entered a home on the 500 block of North Walnut while another distracted the homeowner while she was working outside Aug. 24.
The homeowner told police that while she was in her garage at 1 p.m. Friday, a white Chevy pickup truck occupied by two male Hispanics pulled into her driveway. The passenger got out of the vehicle and told the woman he could fix the cracks in the foundation of her garage. While he walked with her around the garage showing her the cracks, he was speaking to someone on his cell phone in another language. He then left without providing a business card or phone number.
The homeowner went inside the house at about 4:30 p.m. She discovered her belongings had been disturbed and several pieces of jewelry were missing.
