SCARSDALE, N.Y. – A Scarsdale woman reported Saturday that approximately $25,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from her home, police said.
The Greenacres Avenue resident was getting ready to go to dinner when she discovered that the jewelry was missing. She told police all her yellow gold was missing, although other valuable pieces remained untouched.
“It appears the individual was only interested in the yellow gold jewelry, because other kinds of valuable jewelry inside the same box were not touched,” the report said.
There was no sign of forced entry, and an alarm has not been turned on before the family left the home. Two men came to the house the day before to install blinds in the master bedroom, although the housekeeper was present, police said.
Also from the Scarsdale police blotter:
• Jewelry was stolen from a Saxon Woods Road home Sunday. The resident left shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday and returned after midnight the following night and found his rear French door had been forced open. There were pry marks on the bottom of the door and the glass was punched out of the locking mechanism, police said.
Several drawers were rifled through, and two locked jewelry boxes were “ripped apart.” Other items of value, including an iPad, laptop and silverware, were untouched.
• A Willow Lane resident reported Friday that someone else had filed a tax return using his personal information, causing his tax filings to be rejected.
• Several flower planters were broken in front of an Overhill Road home Friday. The family left at 8 a.m., and when they returned home, the planters and a stone gargoyle were overturned and shattered.
