SFPD seeks help finding stolen jewelry worth nearly $1M

San Francisco police are asking for the public’s help finding antique jewelry that was stolen from a car near Ocean Beach last month and is worth nearly $1 million.

The jewelry was taken from a car parked in the parking lot near the Great Highway and Balboa Street at about noon on Aug. 12, according to police. The car, a 2016 black Cadillac Escalade, had its rear driver’s side window shattered, and thieves took two tote bags from the rear cargo area.

Among the items taken in the auto were four unique and antique jewelry pieces totaling approximately $900,000: an 18K yellow gold tassel necklace, cushion cut diamond earrings (approximately 4 carats each), an 18K yellow gold cuff bracelet and a diamond and pearl tassel necklace.

A 2000 blue Acura TL was seen speeding from the area and is believed to be related to the car break-in, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the initial auto burglary or the whereabouts of any of these four jewelry pieces is encouraged to contact the SFPD Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the message with “TIP411.” Tipsters may remain anonymous.
