Rainbow Falls Woman Discovers Burglary, Worker Reports Possible Suspect Info

web posted July 8, 2014

COUNTY LINE A Rainbow Falls Road woman called 911 after arriving home Sunday evening and finding her front door forced open. The deputy cleared the home and found no one inside, however; over $2,000 in jewelry was stolen in addition to two collectable coins. While deputies were on the scene, a witness walked up to provide information on possible suspects.

The woman left the home around 3:30 and returned three hours later around 6:30 to find the burglary had taken place.

After the woman was allowed in the home she reported her cream in color jewelry box was missing from her bedroom. Inside was the following; a 14K gold ring with a January birthstone in the middle surrounded by small diamonds valued at $1,000, a 14K gold ring with the Letter J on top valued at $300, her mother's white gold wedding band set with an unknown value, a gold ring with a May birthstone valued at $200, a pair of diamond stud earrings valued at $400 and her own white gold wedding band set valued at $300.

She also reported a 1922 Silver Dollar and a one dollar gold coin were also stolen. They would have an estimated value of around $450 combined.

The witness, a worker at a nearby manufacturing plant, told deputies that while he was on break he saw a small white car with two black males inside pull into the woman's driveway. One of the men walked to the side door and knocked. After that the men went to the front door where he lost sight of them for 10 to 15 minutes.

He reported that when the men reappeared, one of the men looked to be carrying something, and they got inside the car and left the scene. No tag number was listed in the incident report.

Deputies were able to lift a fingerprint from the front door, which the woman states is never used and had not been opened in "20 years", according to the report.

The case has been turned over to the Edgefield County Sheriff's Criminal Investigative Division for further investigation.
