It was obvious the burglar was looking for something valuable, but when he took Martin Weiss? most prized piece of jewelry he didn?t know just how valuable it was.
?I'm hoping that 48 hours from now, somebody calls with amazing news, like I've got it back, I've got the pendant and I'm going to put it on and probably staple it to my chest,? Weiss said.
Wednesday morning, Madison police were called to the 600 block of North Henry Street. Police said a thief broke into two rooms in the Zeta Beta Tau house without anyone waking up.
The culprit was caught on surveillance cameras breaking in to the house.
?Certainly, we're going to monitoring the pawn shops because often times people try to turn an item of jewelry over,? Madison police spokesperson Joel DeSpain said. ?But for this individual and this individual's family, there is really no dollar value that you can put on this item. It's irreplaceable for them.?
