Losses set at $140,000 in two burglaries

Two burglaries reported over the holidays — one in Woodside and one in Portola Valley — led to losses estimated at $140,000, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The daughter of a recently deceased resident of The Sequoias retirement community said in a Dec. 29 report that two rings with an estimated value of $122,000 are missing from her mother's effects. The rings were last seen in 2007, the daughter told deputies.

Meanwhile, three Persian rugs and a couch, with a total value estimated at $18,000, were stolen from an unoccupied building on Skyline Boulevard, according to a Dec. 27 report from the Sheriff's Office.
