'Roofer' makes off with $6,100 worth of jewelry

May 16, 2012

A man who claimed to be fixing a leaky roof stole jewelry worth more than $6,000 from a Wauwatosa home last week.

According to the police report:

The man came to the home in the 500 block of North 65th Street at 2:17 p.m. May 7. He said a neighbor sent him to fix the leaky roof of the resident's garage.

He walked right in and spent 15 minutes bringing buckets of water in and out of the house before the homeowner called a neighbor.

The man had left, taking items from a bedroom valued at $6,100, before the neighbor arrived.
