As families across the Shoals celebrated Easter with loved ones, thieves in Muscle Shoals took advantage of the empty homes.  Police say thieves targeted a home on Laurel Oak Drive while the family was away.

The thieves went through a window in the back of the house.

Police say the thieves got away with several thousand dollar’s worth of jewelry and a purse from the home.

The homeowner wants those items back so they’ve put up a two thousand dollar reward of their own money for any information leading to a conviction.
