The police added that the arrested, who had been found criminally liable before for thefts and a murder, confessed to the crime.
"It was established that in the morning, being in the state of alcoholic intoxication the criminal was passing by the house of the victim and decided to commit a theft. The suspect made sure that there was no-one in the house and tried to enter it through the door but could not open it. After that, using a crowbar, which he found in the territory of the house, the criminal broke the window. He managed to spend a part of the stolen money: he bought a laptop and rented a flat. The remaining money and the jewelry were confiscated by the police. In the nearest time, the property will be returned to the owner," the department explained.
