• A Flanders woman reported that someone took her gold diamond ring from a jewelry box in her home, according to a police report.

The victim said she took off the rose and yellow gold ring — which was decorated with leaves and three diamond stones — and put it into a box before going to bed last Wednesday night. When she woke up in the morning, the ring was missing, she told police.

The ring is worth about $500, the report states.

A friend had spent the night at the woman’s home, but didn’t have the ring when she checked his pockets, the victim told police. Police were unable to find the ring and are still investigating the incident.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
