Newport Beach police are looking for a thief who stole nearly $700,000 in women's jewelry from a home in a gated community.
On Tuesday, a woman in her 40s noticed that her diamond necklaces, bracelets and earrings had been removed from her closet, according to Sgt. Steve Burdette.
She had left town for the holidays Dec. 22 and returned several weeks ago, but had not looked inside her closet until Tuesday, Burdette said. The woman lives in the 100 block of Old Course Drive, in the One Ford Road neighborhood.
