Teen Girl Asks to Use the Bathroom, Allegedly Steals More Than $17,000 Worth of Jewelry
A Bellington Street woman reported at about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23, that back on Dec. 1 a teen girl knocked on her door at about 6:30 p.m., asked for directions and then asked to use the bathroom.
The woman said she let the girl, who looked about 16, use the bathroom and later discovered that a more than $15,000 wedding ring, $2,000 earrings and $250 earrings had been taken from the bathroom.
The woman told police that she was reporting the incident in late January because a family tragedy in December had occupied all of her attention.
