Moments after Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station deputies responded to a burglary alarm Wednesday morning at a home on the 4300 block of Shepherds Lane, the station also got a call from L.A.

It turns out that the boxes, which still contained assorted costume jewelry, belonged to the burglarized homeowner, who is working with investigators to determine whether anything else is missing from her ransacked bedroom.
