Blotter: House guests steal jewelry, wallets from Southridge home

Denton police are investigating two women who reportedly stole purses, wallets, jewelry and coins while visiting a home in the Southridge neighborhood in the 2100 block of Pembroke Place. 

Police first learned of the burglary about noon Monday, when the 54-year-old homeowner reported the incident. Investigators eventually learned the woman's daughter let the two suspects inside the home on Saturday night. 

The burglary occurred between 7 and 9 p.m., police said. Once the victim learned about the theft, she was able to recover some of the stolen items, the police report said. 

It's unclear whether the victim has a relationship with the suspects. The investigation is ongoing.
