FREMONT -- Police detectives are investigating a burglary in which jewelry was taken from a senior's home then found a few blocks away on the grounds of a Fremont elementary school.
Authorities received a 4:35 p.m. call to Hirsch Elementary School from two teenagers who told officers they found jewelry and empty boxes on a wooden picnic table at the school at 41399 Chapel Way, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.
While en route to the school, officers received another call that a 73-year-old female who lived in the 4200 block of Carol Avenue had just reported a burglary. The victim told officers that someone broke into her home through a back window and took items including jewelry.
The break-in, Bosques said, took place between 10:30 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. Wednesday.
The items found at the school, she said, belonged to the victim.
There are no suspects, Bosques said, and the victim on Thursday planned to go through her home to determine if anything else was taken.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Fremont Police at (510) 790-6800 or their anonymous tip line at (510) 494-4856.
