Cops: $12,000 worth of jewelry stolen from Mt. Pleasant home

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Investigators with the Mount Pleasant Police Department are looking for the person responsible for stealing more than $12,000 worth of jewelry from a home.

On May 16, police responded to a home on Saturday Road for a reported larceny.

The victims said their home had been undergoing a remodel for the last nine months, and had recently noticed that random pieces of men and women's jewelry were missing from a closet.

The couple said they noticed some jewelry missing but did not think anything of it due to the fact that their house was disorganized, and belongings packed in boxes while the construction was taking place.

One of the victims said a week prior she had a suspicious male come to the door who refused to introduce himself and said he was there to work.

The victim said she thought it suspicious because as she called the contractor to confirm the male's employment, the male left the home and continued walking down the road.

Investigators say there were no signs of forced entry, and the victims said they were not always at home when work was being conducted.

Police say the jewelry stolen consisted of a ladies platinum and 18-karat yellow gold diamond ring, a men's yellow gold wedding band, an Omega Seamaster Deville ,"round shaped" diamond earrings, gold Gucci women's watch with diamonds around the outside and miscellaneous jewelry.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
