    Stolen Jewelry Found and returned

    As per my earlier post some may be familiar with me finding 25+ pieces of jewelry in the kudzu patch that I turned into police on June 2nd and they closed the case 10 days later. I had a claim on jewelry and could get it back Aug 2nd. Well since it was not a priority to police to find the owner I didn't turn anymore over and continued to hunt location all through June. Sometimes twice a day(early and late) because of the heat.I found a senior key pendant from a school class of 77 with the initials KWB. I placed an add on Craigslist and contacted the school(no info due to privacy laws) and finally joined classmates website as a member of that class and posted I found an item with KWB initials and wanted to return it.Well Saturday I was contacted by KWB's sister and then him and then his wife. Turns out someone broke into their home the week of Christmas and stole presents TV's and all the jewelry. Mrs KWB was so excited to have any back as some was bought for her by her father that has passed. While I didn't find(yet) a high school ring and the first wedding ring set I was able to find and return 21 bracelets 4 watches 14 necklaces 41 complete sets of earrings 60+ single earrings pendants and broaches. And 30 rings Some were costume ,sterling,gold,diamonds,opals and other semiprecious stones. I made arrangements to meet Mrs.KWB and return items today at 12:30. She sent text 40 mins before already at location waiting. She was kinda excited. Meet her and got hugs and smiles and more of the same in the 20 mins we were there. The Huge smile on her face as she left told it all.Click image for larger version.

    Good on you! It is great that you went back, found more stuff and pursued finding the owner/owners of the Jewelry thus doing the Police Department's job for them. Were you able to pick up the previous found items from the Police Department to return to the owner/owners or did they have to go get them?

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    I gave her the original police report and Investigating (loosely used) Officers card. She called him and will meet with him. Woman had tears in her eyes. She has a special needs son that was with her and she pointed out a couple of plastic rings and be said he gave those to her. I about choked up and he told me they stole Christmas and went through his bedroom drawers.
