About $10,500 in jewelry was reported stolen from an Elm Street home March 4, New Canaan police said.
A resident at Pride's Crossing condominium called police at 7:19 p.m. after she arrived home and noticed that her flat-screen TV was removed from the wall and laying on a chair and that the rear sliding door was open, according to the report. The woman walked out of her home and waited for police to arrive since she didn't know whether the burglar was still inside, police said.
When officers arrived, they searched the house but did not find a suspect, according to the report. Police did not find forced entry as the front door was unlocked and the woman was not sure if the rear door was locked before she left home at 7 a.m., according to the report.
The woman said she was missing about 30 pairs of earrings, about 15 necklaces and a few rings, which were all kept in a box in her bedroom and cost a total of more than $10,000, according to police.
The victim also told police there have been workers in and out of the house over the past few months, but not on March 4, police said.
The case is under investigation.
