MILTON, Ga. – A Portside Bend resident who helped friends out during the Feb. 11 winter storms was the victim of robbery after one or both men stole thousands from her.
The victim told police she let two male friends stay with her for the duration of the storms – Feb. 11-13. After the men left, she went to the grocery store and discovered $350 cash missing from her purse. She then received a call from another friend who warned her about the men, suspecting them in robbing another's home.
When the victim searched her home, she found all her jewelry missing from her bedroom – a solitaire princess three-quarter carat diamond ring, a triple diamond ring, a single stone ruby ring and a sapphire ring, all valued at $6,500, as well as $5,000 worth of miscellaneous jewelry.
