Wedding Ring, Mac Laptop Stolen in Apartment Burglary

A woman's princess cut, diamond wedding ring and white, Mac laptop were stolen from her apartment by an unknown suspect.

An unknown person, or people, entered a La Crescenta woman's apartment while she was at work and stole her wedding ring and Apple laptop, according to the . 

The 59-year-old victim said the burglary happened between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, in the 3100 block of Foothill Boulevard, according to the crime report.

She returned home about 3:30 p.m. and saw her white Mac laptop was missing, deputies said. The victim's dresser appeared ransacked with items thrown all over the floor and her jewelry box no longer contained her wedding ring, sheriff's said. 

The victim said other items could be missing but it was unknown since she needed to take an inventory of the items, officials said. 

Since the window was found wide open, the suspect may have entered the home through the unlocked master bedroom window, according to an initial sheriff's investigation.

The suspect possibly left the apartment through the back sliding door, which was found unlocked when the victim returned, deputies said.

Neighbors told investigators they were away during the time of the burglary. Deputies reported this apartment did not have surveillance footage available to review for information.

The ring, which is described as a princess cut diamond with diamonds on gold band, is valued around $2,500 and the white Mac laptop about $2,000.

This is very sad....however, it is a way of life anymore. My apartment was burglarized many years ago. I didnt have those kinds of valuables, but the terrible feeling of having your home invaded like that, is very upsetting. I did leave my window open a little bit, as it was a nice day. I had to learn. I have also had my business burglarized. I am in the 3100 block of Foothill as well. Some kids awhile back were breaking into lots of businesses. They came in through the roof. Had nothing to do with leaving myself vulnerable by leaving a window open. Its ususally because they are looking for cash or something they can sell for their drugs. We have to always be keeping our eyes open for any suspicious activity. One of the neighbors in the 3100 block apts called me at my business to alert me that she saw kids on the roof here, because she had a birds eye view of them from her vantage point.
