More Than $500,000 Worth of Jewelry Stolen From UP House

More than half a million dollars’ worth of property was stolen from a Park Cities home last week.

According to an incident report supplied by the University Park Police Department, the house on Bryn Mawr Drive was broken into between 3 and 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. The six-page itemized report says the burglar’s haul of stolen loot includes:

  • More than 70 pairs of earrings with a combined value of $170,550
  • Nine wristwatches with a combined value of $102,250
  • Nearly 50 rings with a combined value of $101,180
  • Twenty-five necklaces with a combined value of $71,050
  • Nine bracelets with a combined value of $45,450
  • Nine brooches with a combined value of $10,950.

Also reported stolen were $2,000 cash, a $500 iPod, a $500 laptop, and a $350 hairpin.

The owner of the house declined to comment to Park Cities People, saying he wasn’t looking for any publicity.

Officer Lita Snellgrove could not confirm that this was University Park’s biggest burglary ever, “but I can’t say I’ve seen this much in a while,” she said.

Snellgrove said detectives plan to interview anyone who’s been in the house in the last month, and they’re checking to see if any of the stolen jewelry shows up for sale online.

    I’ve got money that says it’s someone the owners know, maybe not personally but someone who has had access to the home. The house keeper or handyman, maybe not them directly but they could have told someone. How else would some would-be burglar know these people left that kinda of stuff laying around and no one was home? I’m also guessing these people had a house alarm but it wasn’t armed either? I mean, the Park City Police Department’s response time is second to none. Anyhow, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before these burglars are apprehended trying to pawn it. In the future I would suggest a good solid safe securely mounted to the home and activating the home alarm system. Jewelry boxes keeps everything neatly organized…for burglars. It doesn’t have to be an ultra high dollar vault room either, I use a large gun safe. I would also consider getting a Concealed Handgun License. Thats a lot of cash hanging around someone’s neck.

    Our family keeps everything of value like that at the bank. I thought everyone did the same. I guess I’m wrong.
