Antique necklaces stolen

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.
