SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Detectives worked Wednesday to determine who broke into a La Jolla home and stole a Picasso lithograph valued at $5,000, more than $25,000 worth of jewelry, a pistol and a sports car.

A woman who lives in the house on Belvedere Street, near Monte Vista Avenue, reported the burglary about 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Diego police.

The resident told investigators she returned home from an outing to find a print of Pablo Picasso's "Girl with a Red Beret" missing, along with numerous pieces of jewelry, a .40-caliber Glock handgun and a 1995 convertible Porsche, California license No. 5EVM105, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Andra Brown said.

The thief or thieves had forced entry through a side door, according to Brown.

Police had no suspect description as of Wednesday afternoon, the lieutenant said.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the SDPD Northern Division at (858) 552-1700.
