10News is running a story about frustrations and solutions. A local Point Loma woman found her stolen jewelry – worth $1,000 – online, and at first went to the police and then to eBay – both without success … initially.
It’s a cute story with a lesson and happy ending.
Sarah Endemann’s hubby had purchased a pair of apis cabochon stud earrings from Tiffany & Co. and a matching bracelet, worth a thousand bucks. It was a birthday present and he either stuck them or hid them in his golf bag, that he left in his truck.
Well, days later, the Endemann’s cars were both broken into and burglarized; they had been parked in front of their Point Loma home. Natch, they reported the break-in and thefts it to San Diego police and their insurance company. At this point, Mr Endemann must have come forth had disclosed the gift, we suppose.
Sarah was burned and bummed, but it didn’t stop her. She told the TV station:
“I logged on to eBay and just did a little search for Tiffany lapis and sure enough, the bracelet came up… and then I went to the seller’s storefront and saw they had another item for sale and it was the earrings.”
Plus it turned out that Mr Endemann’s name was on the bottom of one of the receipts pictured on eBay.
Sarah turned to the TV station and the rest is history. See their story.
