SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say burglars have stolen jewelry and artwork worth more than $5 million including prints by Monet and Pissarro from a San Diego County home.
The Sheriff's Department sent a statement asking for the public's help Tuesday in finding sculptures, jewel-encrusted necklaces, bracelets and nearly a dozen paintings that were stolen the night of June 17 or early on June 18 from a couple's home in Rancho Santa Fe.
The Sherriff's Department did not release the names of the victims.
The loot also included a timepiece by Andreas von Zadora Gerlof and a painting by Mexican artist José María Velasco Gómez.
Authorities offered a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
