About $170,000 worth of stolen jewelry was confiscated this week in raids on businesses on Jeweler's Row in Center City, police said yesterday. The raids, they said, followed the arrest of a North Philadelphia man who was charged with receiving stolen property after he was seen selling a large quantity of jewelry inside a shop at 88 S. Eighth St. in Center City. Police said the raids and the arrest are part of a continuing investigation by the Major Crimes Division. The investigation began, police said, when they received information that stolen jewelry was being taken to the store at 88 S. Eighth St., and as a result they put out an alert for jewelry store holdups in the region.

The two men - sewer workers - never know what they might find in a day's work. So it was with a bit of expectation that they recently snaked their robotic camera down into a manhole, looking for cracks and water leaks in the sewer pipes. Andrew Brzezicki and his partner, Larry Fisher, both with the Southwest Delaware County Municipal Authority, flushed the lines with a high-pressure water hose to clean them, sifted out grit caught in a screen, and then began to look. Most evident were the usual globs of shiny orange-colored grease - a homeowner's nightmare when it clogs a pipe.
