Watch, jewelry reported stolen

Among recent local property crimes, a $12,500 watch was found missing from a Woodside home, and jewelry valued at $18,900 could not be found after several parties in a Ladera home.

The watch is one of the "Portuguese" family of Swiss watches from IWC Schaffhausen that commemorate the exploits of Portuguese explorers such as Vasco de Gama, Bartolomeu Dias and Ferdinand Magellan, according to the IWC website. Someone stole the watch from the victim's bedroom on Woodside Road while he was vacationing, deputies said. He reported the incident to the Sheriff's Office on Jan. 3.

The next day, deputies learned of the jewelry missing from a home on Conil Way in Ladera. The jewels had been in the victim's bedroom, which was unlocked during parties at the house attended by "a variety of guests," deputies said. The victim said she has "no idea" who might have taken her jewels.

A Dodge Neon automobile was reported missing on Jan. 3 from the 500 block of Portola Road, home to The Sequoias retirement community. The driver left the keys on the driver's seat of his unlocked vehicle when he left the car to go to work, deputies said. Upon his return, the owner could not find the car. A description of the car has been entered into the database of stolen vehicles.
