A woman called police Friday evening after she noticed some jewelry had been taken from her home.

The woman, who lives in the 2100 block of Longmeadow, told police she hired a contractor to do some work in her bathroom the same day she realized her jewelry box and jewelry were missing.

According to police reports, the contractor had responded to the victim’s house when he learned the 36-year-old’s jewelry was missing. The contractor had used two employees to do the work inside the woman’s home.

Police said the contractor had called his employees to come meet him at the house to discuss the matter, but the two men refused.

The amount of jewelry taken was not listed.

No arrests have been made, reports indicate.
