The loot — which included cash and several pieces of jewelry — had been stolen by an unknown perp, who broke into the home, ransacked the bedroom and broke open a safe that included $80,000 cash, 18 yellow metal rings worth approximately $10,000 and 15 metal necklaces worth $15,000. The bathroom window was open, according to the victim.


A 31-year-old woman was the victim of grand larceny when she left her car on the southeast corner of Ridge Boulevard and 93rd Street on Monday, February 29 at approximately 8:45 p.m. When she returned to the vehicle the following morning at around 9:30 a.m., she realized a perp had stolen two tires and rims worth approximately $2,000.
