Police seek help solving jewelry heist | Crime
The Nez Perce County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in solving a burglary that happened early Monday morning in Peck while the elderly residents were asleep. Entry was made into the home at about 4:30 a.m. and the suspect(s) took about $15,000 to $20,000 worth of jewelry from a bedroom.
"The home was occupied by an elderly woman and man who were both sleeping at the time of the burglary," according to a news release. One of the items stolen was a large recognizable men's gold ring shaped like a fish, and the eyes of the fish are made of rubies.
If you have any information on suspects or are aware of any large amounts of jewelry being sold or pawned, contact Deputy Thueson at 208-799-3131. The sheriff's office is also reminding the public to keep windows and doors locked, even in rural areas, in order to minimize the risk of this type of crime.
