It shouldn’t be difficult to miss these things come through a pawn shop:
A sterling silver miniature movable toilet. More than 150 antique miniature books. Autographed Major League Baseball cards of Tony Gwynn, Rickey Henderson and Yogi Berra. And $500 in quarters (well, those are more likely to turn up at a bank.)
San Diego County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a suspect who stole that stuff along with a two watches and jewelry from a Ramona woman in February in a burglary of $64,000 worth of items.
Deputies suspect a family friend of the woman who had stayed at her home several times between Jan. 12 and 28.
Investigators zeroed in on the family friend, Raymon Lee Tillery, after the woman’s stolen earrings turned up at a Ramona pawn shop and the pawn shop owner identified Tillery as the one who brought them in.
Deputies are offering a reward of up to $1,000 to find Tillery. He is described as 42 years old, white, 5 feet 10 inches, weighing 180 pounds with red hair and hazel eyes.
Anyone with information on Tillery should call the Ramona Sheriff’s station at 760-780‐9157 or the Crime Stoppers' anonymous tip line at 888-580‐8477.
