Mangaluru: Thieves broke into the house of Vithal Poojary in KHB colony in Shaktinagar during the night of July 25.
Gold ornaments weighing 40 gms of value of about Rs 1 lakh have been taken away. The theft took place when Poojary and family had locked the house and left for Mumbai. As it happened the same night, it could be the handiwork of people who knew about their absence.
On Sunday morning, some neighbouring noticed that the door of the house was open and phoned Poojary immediately. The police were informed and they began investigations.
