Why would such items be left in a car? The laptop I can understand but rings etc, seems odd, as easy enough to safely keep on your person. Article doesn’t explain such.

Also a lot of false insurance scammers. NOT saying this is the case here, as we know little. Perhaps they were going to get the rings resized or something, yet I would keep such tiny items with me. Perhaps they come from areas where mugging is more likely than car theft, not knowing the Island has low immigration compared with other areas.

Dispicable thing to do. But don’t judge, this was at a stable yard, maybe the lady was working in the field and thought her things would be safe for a while. Its enough she has lost her belongings she doesn’t need judgement.
