Dead Woman’s Belongings Stolen

  Shortly after holding her funeral, family members reported that someone had stolen items that had belonged to a Leoma resident.

  Deputies with the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department spoke with the grandson of Ruby Jenkins on Friday of last week. He reported that he had driven by Jenkins’ now-vacant house and found that a light was on, that had previously been turned off.

  Responding deputies conducted a walk-through, quickly clearing the home. When the grandson checked about, he found that two comforters and a porcelain clown were missing. Loss was estimated at $90.

  In their report, deputies noted that the likely entry point was a bedroom window.

  Investigation into the matter is on-going.
