Picked up my car from tow company . The owner showed me a form regarding the perch . property . Don't remember exactly the wording but said one officer said the jewelry was being held and the other said it wasn't . One statement had been crossed out . I remember the officer asking me when I was in the back of the police car about the jewelry . I described it all . He stated that the jewelry was now " taken " jewelry . He made it sound like I had stolen it . After getting the opportunity to get to the evidence storage place in Concord my jewelry wasn't there . HELP !
