A New Canaan resident had all her jewelry stolen during an afternoon burglary Sept. 12, according to police.
The 45-year-old woman told police she left her New Norwalk Road home at about 12:15 p.m. that day and returned just before 5 p.m., at which point she noticed the front door was unlocked, police said. The victim then went to the master bedroom and found several drawers rummaged through, according to the report.
The complainant told police all her jewelry, which is valued at about $100,000, was gone. Police said she's still preparing a list of the items.
According to the report, police found signs of forced entry to a basement window and they believe the burglar or burglars probably exited through the front door.
