$10K in Jewelry Taken from Pride's Crossing Home

A back door may (or may not) have been unlocked before a home on Elm Street was burglarized.

A 56-year-old woman arrived home at her Pride's Crossing condominium at 7:15 p.m. to find the back door open, her flat screen television off the wall (but still there) and more than $10,000 worth of her jewelry taken.

New Canaan police gave this account of the burglary:

She had left her home in the residential complex at 312 Elm St. that morning sometime between 7 and 7:30 a.m. and was away for about 12 hours.

When she found her home had been entered, she backed out and called New Canaan police, who searched the place and found no one. A rear sliding door had been left open.

The woman couldn't say whether or not she'd left it locked, and police said they were uncertain which door was used to gain entry.

Jewelry, including about 30 pairs of earrings, was taken from the bedroom, including items from a jewelry box. Necklaces and a few rings were among the items missing.

Over the past few months, there had been workers in and out of the home.

A police investigation is continuing.
