PELHAM, N.Y. A Pelham Manor home was burglarized between 7 a.m. and 4:25 p.m. Wednesday and an unknown suspect took assorted items of jewelry, police said.
The back door had been pried open while she was away, the Bonmar Road homeowner told the Pelham Manor Police Department in a 911 call.
Officers concluded that was how entry was gained. Every room and closet on the second floor of the single-family home had been ransacked and appeared to be in disarray, police said.
The victim told police that an unknown amount of jewelry was taken from the second floor rooms. The first floor and attic appeared to be untouched, according to police. Officers searched the area and interviewed neighbors to no avail.
The victim will give the police department a detailed list of missing items at a later time. A detective processed the scene, and the detectives division was notified.
