RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Thieves break into a Richmond woman's car in the Fan District and stole several items, but it's what the crooks didn't take that's pretty surprising.

It happened in the 2800 block of Monument Avenue Tuesday morning.

When the victim got inside her car, she noticed her iPod and laptop had been stolen.

There is one thing the thieves didn't take -- a 1.5 karat diamond ring.

Erin Brennan says while her car was locked, but she left the window down just under an inch.  She thinks the crooks used some sort of device to pop her lock open.

If you have any information about this crime, contact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
