82-Year-Old Woman Selling Home After Burglar Takes $47K Worth of Valuables

An 82-year-old woman was forced to move out of the Inland Empire house she lived in for more than 60 years after a burglar stole her jewelry, computer, and more, taking $47,000 worth of her valuables, police said Monday.

The San Bernardino Police Department released images of a man accused in the March 10 crime that occurred in the woman’s home in the 3600 block of North G Street.

The victim, who identified herself as only "Anne," is so shaken up by the burglary that she had decided to sell her home because she no longer feels safe.

"It breaks my heart," she said.

All in all, the man was accused of stealing more than 100 pieces of her jewelry, including her wedding ring, checks, car keys and purses.

"Things I had since I was a little girl -- gone," Anne said. 

The man was described as 20-25 years old, 5-feet 6-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall, and weighing 160-180 pounds. He was also wearing a Lakers hat.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call police at 909-384-5650.
