A woman reported her Braselton home was burglarized and jewelry was stolen while she was out of town for the holidays.

Braselton Police Department officers were called for the burglary report on Lakeshore Cir. after a woman noticed her bedroom window had been tampered with.

She also noticed someone had taken four pieces of jewelry from a box and the missing items were valued at $6,435.

Officers didn't see any signs of forced entry. The woman said someone may have entered through a door that doesn't close all the way due to warped wood.

She suspected it was her neighbors, whom she said have a drug problem. They reportedly knew she planned to be out of town.
