Safe containing $200,000 in valuables is missing from Woodside home

In the days just before Thanksgiving, when the owners of a home on Godetia Drive in Woodside were away, someone entered the house and stole a safe with high-value jewelry inside, according to a report by deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

A gardener informed deputies of the situation after finding the house with its front door open and one of its windows shattered, said deputies, who have since secured the interior of the house.

After contacting the owners, both of whom are still away from home, deputies have ascertained that it was a burglary and that the contents of the missing safe have an estimated value of about $200,000.

In addition to the jewelry, the safe contained "miscellaneous personal information," deputies said. A specific accounting of the losses, as well as possible leads on suspects, could be forthcoming after the owners return, deputies said.

Nice that the news team decided to broadcast to the general public that the homeowners are still away from home. Just in case there is anything that the first team of thieves missed....
