CUMMING, Ga. — A homeowner on Rose Creek Drive reported the theft of jewelry May 13, several days after he had contracted a carpet cleaning service.
The victim told authorities that two males from the cleaning company had worked at the house May 8. A few days later, he noticed that a black box in his bedroom had markings indicating a failed attempt to pry it open. He then checked the dresser drawers where his mother’s jewelry and his ring were located. The jewelry was gone.
The victim quickly called the company and spoke with the owner to report the incident. The company owner informed the victim that his own son was the employee responsible for cleaning his residence. He then became angry and hung up. Multiple rings, birth stones and a tennis bracelet were reported stolen for a total value of around $4,000.
The empty plastic bags that contained the jewelry were taken into evidence. The victim is unsure of anyone else who could have entered the residence besides his daughter.
