Denton County sheriff’s deputies went to the 4900 block of Stuart Road on Thursday after a man called and said that two rings were missing from his home.
According to reports, the man noticed that one of the rings — a 1-carat diamond ring — was missing on the first of November but didn’t make a report because he filed a claim with his insurance company.
The second ring — a gold horse head with small diamonds — was discovered missing Wednesday, according to the report.
The man told deputies that the ring was next to the kitchen sink of his home in a drawer on Thanksgiving Day. He said his reason for filing a report now is because the insurance company needed a police report on the missing jewelry.
100 block of Brandon Way, Lincoln Park — A sheriff’s deputy responded to a call Thursday after a woman complained that someone had used her Social Security number to file a tax return.
The woman said she received a letter Tuesday from the Social Security Administration informing her of her benefits, and the letter noted that she had filed a tax return in the amount of $96,400.
The woman told the deputy that the tax return was not hers and that she isn’t required to file a return because she doesn’t make enough money.
The Social Security Administration was contacted and advised her to make a report with the Sheriff’s Office.
