Jefferson County sheriff

Shrinking suspect pool: A Bloomingdale woman reported her .38 caliber Ruger had been stolen while she and her husband, had been away, Thursday. The woman said she discovered the theft when they returned home Sept. 6 but waited until they had the serial number for the handgun to report it. She said the individual who robbed them would have to know where to look for her spare key, so they think they know who did it. The thief also took seven pieces of jewelry valued at $4,000, including an $1,800 gold necklace, a $5,000 tennis bracelet and a $1,000 gold tennis bracelet, plus cash.
