$60K in jewelry stolen in Bradenton burglary

MANATEE - About $60,000 in jewelry was stolen in a burglary Thursday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

An 18-year-old woman told investigators that she had left the jewelry in the trunk of her car, which she had parked in a garage in the 5000 block of 45th Street West, in the Glenn Lakes subdivision.

The rear sliding glass to the residence was forced open by unknown means and the trunk to the vehicle was pried open with an unknown object.

The victim said that her brother had access to the truck one last week and had two friends with him who possibly saw the jewelry.
