One of the residents was missing a blue diamond ring valued at $2,700, last seen in her jewelry box July 27. When she went to retrieve the ring from the box — located underneath clothing in a dresser drawer — on Aug. 3, she discovered it missing.
Another resident of the senior living community noticed a diamond necklace, valued at between $750 and $1,999, missing from a jewelry box located in a dresser drawer in her room. The necklace turned up missing the same day as the ring.
Bike taken from yard
A children’s Specialized Strider balance bike, valued at $200, was taken from the front yard of a house in the 9100 block of Buck Hill Drive in Highlands Ranch on Aug. 16, after a mother called her children inside when she noticed two men who were traveling in a blue pickup truck were picking through her trash at the curb.
The woman, who did not want her children outside with the strangers picking through her garbage, let her kids out to play again after the men left, and it was then the bike was noticed missing. There are no leads at this time.
