BRIDGETON — Police are investigating after over $8,000 worth of jewelry and rosary beads were reported stolen from a city home Wednesday evening.

At 6:12 p.m., officers responded to the first block of Railroad Avenue for a report of a residential burglary, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

Police did not release the name of the victim, who said she noticed her kitchen window was wide open when she got home and that a safe was missing from the bedroom.

The safe contained a silver diamond ring valued at $1,000, a gold ring with birthstones valued at $1,000, two crystal rosary beads valued at $200, six assorted silver and gold rings valued at $6,000 and personal paperwork.
