A safe containing over $100,000 worth of jewelry that was stolen last month from a Marblehead home was found by police in Wenham on Tuesday.
Police said in a statement Wednesday officers on patrol near Boulder Lane discovered the safe after noticing some debris on the side of the road. Wednesday morning it was determined the safe was the same item stolen during a break-in in Marblehead in mid-March.
“We’re pleased to have recovered these items to return to their rightful owner,” Wenham Police Chief Thomas Perkins said in a statement. “I commend the work of the detectives from the Wenham Police Department and Marblehead Police Department, who will continue to collaborate throughout this investigation.”
The investigation into the theft is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Wenham police at 978-468-4000, or Marblehead police 781-631-1212.
