An east Denton County woman is allegedly missing more than $8,000 worth of jewelry, according to sheriff’s reports.

Deputies responded to the 2500 block of Blackjack Road on Tuesday after a woman claimed upon returning to her place of residence, she discovered someone had entered and removed property from her home.

The woman said numerous jewelry items were stolen from her two standing jewelry boxes and dresser drawers.

She also said a container full of quarters was also taken from the headboard of the master bedroom.

A flat screen TV was taken from the living room and moved to the back door, deputies said.

Reports indicate there was a broken window on the west side of the residence but it did not appear entry was made at this point.

The husband of the woman did not remember locking the back door, deputies said.
