The victim said the power company imposture came Wednesday between 7 and 8 p.m. and asked to see the back yard, which took about 10 minutes, because the city was looking to place a new power pole in the area.
The woman then pretended to call a coworker about a mailer she told the victim she should have received, then left.
The next morning, the victim noticed the jewelry, including a necklace, ring and earrings, were gone, and called police.
