Gloucester Police/Fire: Woman reports theft from unlocked home

A $1,000 gold chain and a $50 bottle of perfume were taken from a woman’s house on Stone Court on Monday.

The woman called police at 3:29 p.m. and when they arrived she told them that someone apparently walked in through the unlocked front door and took the items while she was at the grocery store.

She said she suspected her cousin took the items, since the cousin had been calling her asking for money over the past few days. Police are investigating.

Police confiscated a pellet gun from a youth on Dale Avenue Monday at 11:35 a.m. after responding to a call from a resident who said a child had a gun.

Police found the youth on the Sawyer Free Library steps with a pellet gun wrapped in a white trash bag. He told officers he was going to sell it to a friend at Walgreens. Police, however, took the gun and told him to come to the station with his parents later.

A woman called police after she couldn’t find her purse on Sunset Road, Monday at 8:53 p.m.

She said the purse had disappeared some five hours earlier, and that it contained $300 worth of jewelry, along with a driver’s license and several credit cards. Twenty minutes after the first call, she called police again and said she found her purse inside her home.

Another woman called police to report that she found her purse missing from her unlocked car Tuesday morning at around 9:48 a.m.

She told officers that someone took her purse from her car on Main Street. Police are investigating, but the woman said she had no potential suspects.

Officers told several people to leave the Fitz Henry Lane house at 12:16 p.m. on Monday after they found them sleeping behind the historic building.
