A Lawrence woman reported to police Saturday that a burglar entered her home the previous night and stole jewelry while she was asleep in another room.

The burglar apparently entered the unlocked home sometime between 9 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. Saturday and stole jewelry from the downstairs bedroom of a roommate, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. The burglar dumped the roommate's purse in the living room, stole jewelry from the bedroom, and ignored other valuable items. The jewelry was valued at $1,000, McKinley said. Police have not yet identified a suspect.

So who is responsible for locking their own doors and windows ? Or cars and motorcycles securely ?

Not locking your doors and windows makes, it easy for junkies to self destruct, robbing houses to feed their bad habits !......and could cost you or them a trip to the grave yard .

And if your neighbor sees what is happening and calls the cops, then they get summonsed to court to have to testify for the prosecution, if they catch the junky,.....where the neighbor gets to deal with the junky, his crew that shows up for his or her trial.... and the lawyer for the defense !

Save yourself and your neighbors the problem ! Lock your home, stuff & car securely !

Never ceases to amaze me how people can SLEEP through someone burglarizing their home.

A dog would have prevented this crime.

something similar happened to me in the 13th & Kentucky St. area years ago-- The guy was very bold, saw my purse sitting on the kitchen counter, came in, cleaned my cashed paycheck out of it and kindly placed my emptied purse outside my door. What scared me was that I was walking around cleaning our small 2 bedroom apartment so I could have caught him inside my home at any time. Glad I didn't. This same person stole things out of cars & the back of trucks in our parking lot too. It doesn't say where this took place but makes me wonder.....

... Justanotherface and Th_big-B, dunno how her being armed would've helped her in this situation except that the perp could've lifted the gun too while she slept.

yes, a gun for self defense would be good, and she might consider that, CCW. but lock doors and windows is a good start.

I'm just glad nothing happened to her physically! jewelry can* be replaced!

  1. Lock your doors and windows
  2. Keep a firearm locked and loaded in your night stand

Yea..it's not like there's been a hundred burglaries in the past year. Why lock your door? Then you have to unlock it the next morning...what a drag!

I wonder if this was the same guy who has been going through my complex and rifling through people's unlocked cars.

A good alarm system, and double locked doors might help prevent this. Plus a dog that barks loudly. In this day and age of so many aggravated burglaries, it is a wonder to me that someone hasn't been killed. It is not good to leave your doors unlocked, anytime.

People need to be much more cautious. Secure your residence and do not share much information about your schedule or your assets.

There is nothing you need to know mdlund0 except to keep your doors locked and your mouth shut.

I would suspect the paper released all of the information they were allowed to

Another article surpassing the journalistic excellence that I expect out of the Journal World. As soon as you start reading you already know Who, What, Where, When, and How. No? Well I guess 2 out of 5 isn't half bad. Crap! It IS half bad... actually, slightly more than half bad. WHERE DID THIS TAKE PLACE? WHO WAS THE VICTIM? HOW DID THE BURGLAR GET IN? THESE ARE THE THINGS WE NEED TO KNOW!

I wonder if it was someone she knew, who might have known where her stuff was.
