Money and jewelry were reported stolen June 2 from an upstairs safe in a home in Holmes Beach.

Holmes Beach police responded to the 700 block of Key Royale Drive to investigate a theft at a residence, where the homeowner reported jewelry and $100,000 had gone missing.

The owner told police approximately $100,000 and an unknown amount of jewelry was taken.

According to a police report, the owner recently had workers in the house and a key to the safe was left taped to a wall in a closet.
