Burglary: A newlywed couple living on Southeast 32nd Street contacted police after discovering that items had been stolen while they were away on their honeymoon.

A basket containing Christmas cards and photographs in the same closet had also been searched through, along with a journal.
The couple spoke with the nanny and a housekeeper to see if they had moved the items to clean but they said no. The nanny did say that she had seen a car that looked like the woman’s ex-husband’s sitting in the driveway on one occasion. The woman asked her children if her ex-husband had come into the house and they said no, that he had stayed in the car. Sometime later the couple noticed that a box containing sentimental jewelry was also missing, and later still noticed that a fur coat was gone as well.
There was no evidence that the house had been ransacked and other more valuable items were undisturbed. The couple did say that a back door had been left open so the family dog could go in and out.
