Police don't often ask for the public's help to solve a car break-in, but then most cars aren't carrying nearly $1 million in jewelry. The San Francisco Chronicle reports someone smashed the windows of a Cadillac Escalade parked in San Francisco on Aug. 12 and stole two tote bags that were inside. Police say the bags contained approximately $900,000 in jewelry, including diamond earrings, a diamond and pearl necklace, an 18-karat gold necklace, and an 18-karat gold bracelet. Police are looking for a blue 2000 Acura TL believed to be involved in the burglary and asking any residents with information to get in touch. (More San Francisco stories.)
