Police are asking for the public’s help with finding out who entered two local residences in recent weeks and walked away with several pieces of jewelry on both occasions.

Searsport Police Chief Dick LaHaye said the most recent complaint came in to police Wednesday, Aug. 17, when the homeowner called to report that several pieces of jewelry were missing from the residence. LaHaye said the doors and windows of that particular residence had been locked, and there was no sign of forced entry.

There was also no indication of a forced entry at another residential burglary that was reported to police Thursday, Aug. 11, LaHaye said, because it appeared the person(s) involved entered that home through an unlocked door. Five pieces of jewelry were reported missing in that case, LaHaye said.

LaHaye declined to reveal the exact location of either residence, noting that both complaints remain under investigation.

In the most recent case that was reported Aug. 17, LaHaye said the five pieces of jewelry that turned up missing had a value of about $500. In the Aug. 11 complaint, LaHaye said the missing jewelry was valued at about $3,000.

Anyone with information about either case is asked to contact police at 548-2304.
