Area 3

4300 block of Shepherds Lane: As the Valley Sun reported last week, deputies responding to a residential burglary alarm at 8:40 a.m. on Dec. 29 received a call moments later that three jewelry boxes were thrown from a vehicle as it passed L.A. County Fire Station 82 while entering the 210 Freeway. Deputies discovered costume jewelry strewn around the floor of the home's master bedroom and a jewelry box on the ground just outside the home. The three boxes thrown from the vehicle contained costume jewelry that belonged to the burglary victim.

The victim did not file a report until Dec. 28 because she assumed she had misplaced the purse.
