Antique necklaces stolen

William Ferchland

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.

– Black onyx with a Chinese prince warlord on horseback with an army entering a castle.

– Dark green jade with three jade hanging stones.

– Tiger-eye jasper with a large silver piece.

The tents at Horizon have been targeted by thieves before. Recently someone took $400 worth of Oakland Raiders golf gear.
