Police Notes: Missing Jewelry, Warrant Arrest for Prostitution and Injury to Officer
Jewelry worth more than $60,000 was stolen from a Piedmont home, but the owner delayed reporting the theft until she made an extensive search of her house — just in case she had misplaced the jewelry boxes.
The theft of more than $60,000 worth of jewelry from a Lexford Road home was reported at least three months after it occurred because the owner thought she might have misplaced the items, Piedmont Police Detective George Phfer said Tuesday.
He said the victim discovered that two boxes containing the jewelry were missing in July, but she made an extensive search of her home before reporting the loss this month. She last saw the missing items in February of 2013.
In a separate incident, police arrested Leshon Jordan, 27, of Brentwood on outstanding warrants for resisting arrest and prostituion, Phifer said.
He said an officer spotted Jordan wearing a hospital-type gown in front of Grand Lake Ace Hardware, 1221 Grand Ave., at 11:18 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7.
Police questioned the woman and discovered that she had warrants for resisting arrest with injury to a police officer and for prostitution in Marin County and another warrant for prostitution from Berkeley, Phifer said.
