Thief enjoys some homey comforts after breaking into house
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A thief made himself or herself at home after breaking into a house in central Lincoln, authorities said.
The resident called police Monday evening and said that when she got home from work, she found her back door broken and several items missing, the Lincoln Journal Star reported.
"It appears the (thief) spent a lot of time in the house. There were cigarettes found all over the house, items moved from upstairs to downstairs," Officer Erin Spilker said.
The thief even prepared food in the kitchen before leaving with the woman's wedding rings and a ruby ring, plus groceries, a coffee pot and two garbage cans. The total loss was estimated at $9,000.
