On Sunday, Sept. 8, at about 12:20 p.m., police were called to Library Place for a report of larceny as the resident reported two rings were stolen from her apartment.
Upon arriving, the officer learned that the rings had been taken from a container on the woman’s bedroom dresser. The calling resident said her husband passed away days earlier, and many people had come by to express their sympathies. The woman believes that the rings were taken possibly between the time her husband died and the funeral.
The two rings were described as a large solitaire diamond set in a gold band and a gold Claddagh ring with a diamond set in the center. The resident was extremely upset, because the large diamond ring was her mother’s ring.
When asked if she suspected anyone of the theft, the woman said a person who formerly dated a family member came by after the caller’s husband passed away. The visiting woman went down the hall near the bedroom, and the homeowner assumed she was going to the bathroom.
However, when the woman came back, she allegedly seemed in a hurry and suddenly left. The woman denied involved when confronted with the information.
