$100,000 in jewels reported stolen

Deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office are reporting a theft from a Greer Road residence in Woodside of about 10 pieces of jewelry with an estimated value of more than $100,000.

Though reported Aug. 13, it's a cold case. The theft occurred sometime between Aug. 1, 2012, and Feb. 28, 2013, Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said.

The owner of the jewels first noticed something missing from her collection in February, and did an inventory in March. She decided recently to report the theft at the suggestion of an insurance company in order to acquire a police report, Ms. Rosenblatt said.
