Jewelry stolen in two Pleasanton burglaries

Pleasanton police report that tens of thousands of dollars in jewelry were stolen in two separate break-ins.

The first occurred between April 29 and May 3, but was reported May 13. That incident took place in the 5400 block of Northway Road. According to police reports, a gold bracelet valued at $6,000 was stolen, along with three gold rings: one with an oval diamond, valued at $1,500; another with a diamond valued at $2,000; and a third with three small diamonds, valued at $500.

The second burglary took place May 18 between 10 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. in the 7300 block of Royal Oaks Court. A police report shows two Rolex watches stolen -- a women's watch valued at $11,500 and man's watch worth $6,500 -- along with a platinum wedding set valued at $7,500; a PS3 video console, worth about $400; and a number of video games valued at about $1,250.

The last week, Pleasanton police reported a burglary of jewelry and cash at an apartment in the 3400 block of Cornerstone Court. Taken in that burglary was $8,000 in cash and $825 in jewelry and coins.

Police in the area have reported a rise in daytime break-in attempts, with people knocking on doors and ringing doorbells to see if homeowners are present. Residents have been asked to watch for suspicious behavior.
