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.
