About $32,000 worth of high-end jewelry items were estimated to have been stolen during a window-smash burglary early Saturday at a jewelry store in San Carlos.
Just before 3 a.m. Saturday, deputies responded to EmKay Diamonds at 538 B El Camino Real after an alarm sounded due to glass breaking at the business, the sheriff’s office said. They found the front door to the business open and glass strewn about the floor. Several jewelry display cases had been smashed and pieces of jewelry were scattered throughout the business, the sheriff’s office said.
A witness told deputies a 1980s Toyota Tacoma “backed up to the front door of the business as the alarm was sounding.” The vehicle fled southbound on El Camino Real at a high rate of speed before deputies arrived.
The driver was described as a white man, about 6’03”, 160 pounds, wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a backwards dark-colored baseball cap.
“The investigation is ongoing to locate additional witnesses and surveillance video in the area,” the sheriff’s office said.
