The burglar -– described by neighbors as a woman in her 40s -– squeezed through a doggie door of a residence on the 1900 block of North Fairview Street and moved the homeowner’s pet dog to the master bedroom, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

The thief then made off with jewelry, figurines and “I Love Lucy” collectibles, Ryburn said.

The suspect was seen by a neighbor entering the passenger side of a dark sedan, which sped off eastbound on Vanowen Street, Ryburn said.

The break-in Tuesday marked the third home burglary in the city in a week.
