Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you .
No if the jewelry belongs to the mother it should be returned to her.It is her personal property and she can involve the police if necessary.The trustee would not have a right to keep the property unless the mother made it a part of her trust assets. Her personal property belongs to her and she can demand its return.She can involve the police here if necessary and seek the return of it.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again and I wish her the best here forcing return of her property.
I wish you and your family a happy holidays.
