I parked my car on 14th Street in front of the Whitman Walker Clinic (Between Riggs and R Street) yesterday. Between 1:50 and 2pm, while I was moving things from my car, two bags were taken out of my car – one bag was found with most of the belongings strewn about an alley a half block away, obviously all valuables taken, and the other was missing entirely. In that bag was my best friend’s jewelry, mostly of no value other than sentiment. It’s turquoise jewelry that her grandfather made for her mom and grandmother that was passed down to her.
I am certain I locked the car, but there is no sign of forced entry. So maybe I didn’t – and that’s my fault. I’m not sure.
I’m asking for anyone who has any information to please contact me ([email protected]) or if anyone sees unique native american jewelry show up at consignment or pawn shops to please let me know.
If anyone finds a black duffle bag with clothes somewhere in the vicinity of where my car was, that would still be of some consolation to my friend to have those back.
I’m willing to pay anything to get her jewelry back – I’m heart broken, my friend is devastated. It’s not worth much, but the value of sentiment is priceless.”
