NIAGARA FALLS – More than $10,000 worth of medication, cash and jewelry were stolen from a house in the 200 block of 70th Street Monday.

The 52-year-old victim told police Tuesday that she had left for a short time and noticed the back gate open, but did not immediately notice anything missing. She said she keeps her pain pill medication in a lock box under her bed and when she went to get the medicine on Tuesday the box was gone.

In addition to medication, the victim said a $4,000 ring, as well as earrings, other rings, personal papers, and $840 in cash were gone. The total loss was placed at $10,430.

The woman said someone who stole her purse a few years ago may have had her keys to gain access to her house.
