An unknown burglar or burglars swiped more than $130,000 worth of cash and valuables from a Grays Ferry home last week. 

A 25-year-old left her residence on the 2600 block of McKean Street at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 31, but when her 16-year-old relative came home at 3 p.m., she found the front door wide open, the second-floor bedroom door broken and all of the bedrooms ransacked, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. A three-foot high safe containing $71,500 and $60,000 worth of jewelry, an Xbox, two HP laptops and a few pairs of Jordan sneakers were missing.

“A 25 year old has over $71,000 in cash in her house AND $60,000 in jewelry? Does anyone think that is a bit strange? There are people who worked all of their lives and don't have that kind of money in their homes or in a bank account. Even if this young woman had her own business, why not keep that cash in a bank where it's safe?”

“how dare you claim that this fine A student is selling drugs? He may have won this money in a science fair contest? Or he was accepted to Harvard and this is a prize from the United Negro College Fund!”
