Possessions valued at more that $200,000 -- including about $100,000 in gold and silver bars -- as well as several firearms were reported stolen from a Jackman Avenue home last week.

The break-in was reported to police last Friday.

White powder found on the floor of the home was later determined by firefighters to be discharge from a fire extinguisher.

A safe containing the gold and silver bars was missing from the master bedroom, according to the report, while the firearms were taken from a gun safe in another bedroom.

Several paintings were also taken from the walls, and police were told that assorted jewelry and silverware also is missing.

A neighbor reported previously seeing a pickup truck in the driveway that she thought belonged to a handyman.

The incident is under investigation.
