SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Security video from a home in Summerville shows a man enter through a kitchen window and leave with a bag filled about $10,000 in jewelry.
Summerville police officers say a couple went to their home on Reynolds Road around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday and noticed the drawers in their bedroom, bathroom and dining room were open. They had been gone since 7:40 that morning.
When they checked their self-installed security camera, they saw a man enter the house through a window that was left partially open to vent out the smell of cleaning chemicals. Officers say the suspect was wearing work-style gloves.

The suspect walks directly toward the dining room, then toward a closet in the living room, then to a hallway that leads to the bedroom.
