The Porter County Sheriff’s Police is investigating the theft of jewelry
from a residence in the 900 block of North Calumet Ave. in Liberty Township.
According to police, sometime between Sept. 28 and Christmas Eve someone
removed four pieces of jewelry from a box in the resident’s bedroom: a 0.75
carat marquis-cut diamond in a platinum setting, a marquis-cut diamond and
emerald ring, a amethyst surrounded by diamonds in a gold ring setting, and
a necklace with a garnet and two diamonds.
The victim advised police that “her house is in a state of disrepair and
looks like it has been ransacked all the time, so she has not noticed
anything else missing,” police said.
Police estimated the total loss at $7,300.
