Antique necklaces stolen
August 10, 2004
Five antique Chinese necklaces totaling $8,500 were reported stolen from a 68-year-old vendor at a tent at the Horizon Casino Resort, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy said.
The necklaces were inside a jungle print bag under the stand of Eves Apples, a clothing and jewelry tent.
The theft occurred Aug. 5. The owner said the necklaces were based on 18th-century design.
The necklaces were described as:
– Turquoise with hanging stones.
– Pink jasper with bats, butterflies and a three-toed frog.
