A 28-year-old Hoboken woman's laptop and charm hair jewelry were stolen from her apartment during a burglary on Tuesday in which the deadbolt lock was ripped from her apartment door, police said.
Officers responding to the Park Avenue apartment at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday saw heavy damage to the door where the deadbolt was torn from the door jamb, suggesting heavy force was used to gain entry, police said.
The 28-year-old told police she had left the apartment in the morning and locked the apartment door with the deadbolt, reports said.
In a search of the apartment with the officers, the woman noticed a Dell laptop valued at $800 was missing, reports said.
The laptop appeared to have been quickly ripped from the desk because the power cord was found in the middle of the living room floor and electronic items attached to it were found pulled from their original positions along the wall, police said.
There was also an undetermined amount of jewelry missing, police were told. A dresser drawer where the jewelry had been stored was found on her bed along with empty watch and jewelry boxes, reports said.
Officers noticed an Apple I-Pad left on the bedroom floor near the bed, along with a camera in a black bag and several expensive watches stored in nondescript containers that may have been discovered if the burglar had more time while committing the burglary, police said.
Officers conducted a search of the building, which revealed no other apartments were burglarized, reports said.
Another neighbor in the building said she did not hear any loud banging or see any suspicious people, but was not in the building for a portion of the day, police said.
