Westerville: Jewelry, antiques and artwork taken in burglary

A house in the 1000 block of Wake Drive was reported burglarized between 11 a.m. Feb. 14 and 5 p.m. Feb. 17.

According to Westerville police reports, it appeared as though one person spent several minutes forcing open the locked and dead-bolted door.

Closets in the residence and the master bedroom were ransacked, and jewelry, antiques, artwork and a jar containing approximately $400 in change were stolen, reports said.

Electronics in other parts of the home were left untouched.
