A thief tricked her way into a Murfreesboro elderly woman's apartment and swiped her jewelry while she wasn't looking.

Police say it happened at an assisted living facility on Friday.

That's when police say a woman asked to look around inside the elderly woman's home, after complimenting how nice it looked.

The woman then asked to use the bathroom, and once inside, she stole jewelry the elderly woman had hanging inside the bathroom.

The victim told police the suspect was a heavyset tall woman, likely between 60 and 70 years old.
