The Commerce Police Department is investigating the alleged theft by a homeless man of $10,000 in jewelry from a Commerce Crossing apartment on Steve Reynolds Industrial Boulevard.
According to the incident report, the tenant allowed two homeless men from Crawford to spend six nights in his apartment. At the same time, he let another couple stay there because one of them knew one of the homeless men.
At some point, one of the men gave the victim a “lockbox” in which to keep her jewelry and medications, assuring her that she had the only key.
Some time later the woman reported that the man left with five rings valued at $10,000 and her Roxycodone — taken from the lockbox.
