Home invasion robbery in Rancho Santa Fe

Posted: Updated:

RANCHO SANTA FE (CNS) - Two thieves, one armed with a gun, confronted a woman in a North County home Thursday, then tied her up and stole jewelry before fleeing, leaving her bound and alone in the large residence.

The victim made an emergency call shortly after 3 p.m. to report the home-invasion robbery in the 4000 block of El Mirlo in Rancho Santa Fe, according to the sheriff's department.

The woman said the bandits had showed up in the Spanish-style house about 12:30 p.m., and children returning home several hours later untied her, according to a dispatcher said.

The woman, who was uninjured, said the robbers appeared to be in their 30s. One had long, straight blond hair and was wearing gray jeans, a striped shirt and sunglasses, she reported. His accomplice, a tall man with short hair, was wearing a baseball cap.
