The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office is currently seeking two women suspected of burglarizing an Alamo home during an open house in July, officials announced this week.
According to the sheriff's office, the burglary occurred during an open house on Valley Oaks Drive on July 16. Investigators believe the realtor was distracted by one suspect while the other stole some jewelry and watches from the home.
Shortly after returning to their house, the homeowner reported the missing items to the sheriff's office.
The two suspects were described as African-American women in their 20s, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and with heavy builds. Investigators have released a photo of one of the suspects.
The Walnut Creek Police Department has also taken three similar reports of open house thefts in the last two months, believed to have been perpetrated by the same individual as in the photo released in the Alamo case.
Sheriff's officials ask anyone with information on the case or on the identity of the woman in the released photo to contact the Investigation Division at 313-2661.
