The 59-year-old victim said the burglary happened between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, in the 3100 block of Foothill Boulevard, according to the crime report.

She returned home about 3:30 p.m. and saw her white Mac laptop was missing, deputies said. The victim's dresser appeared ransacked with items thrown all over the floor and her jewelry box no longer contained her wedding ring, sheriff's said. 

The victim said other items could be missing but it was unknown since she needed to take an inventory of the items, officials said. 

Since the window was found wide open, the suspect may have entered the home through the unlocked master bedroom window, according to an initial sheriff's investigation.

The suspect possibly left the apartment through the back sliding door, which was found unlocked when the victim returned, deputies said.

Neighbors told investigators they were away during the time of the burglary. Deputies reported this apartment did not have surveillance footage available to review for information.

The ring, which is described as a princess cut diamond with diamonds on gold band, is valued around $2,500 and the white Mac laptop about $2,000.
