(CNN) - More than a dozen pieces of jewelry were stolen from former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Deer Valley, Utah home last week, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Park City police told the paper that the thief was likely someone who had access to the house. There was no sign of forced entry.

The $5 million home is currently up for sale, along with another Romney residence in Massachusetts.

The former Massachusetts governor will address activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington Friday, as he aims for his third win in the annual gathering’s presidential preference straw poll.

    I am sure Mr. Romney can weather out the loss. Why, he only has $160 million left in his "nest egg". No sympathies at all from this corner.

    Suspicious......he just sold two estates and now this. Insurance fraud. But that is the Republican way. WE all pay for their mistakes, not them.

    The next republican or CONservative i hear screaming about spending is gonna cost me a t.v. as I shoot mine. FOR THE RECORD: CONSERVATIVES HAVE NO FISCAL CREDIBILITY !

    Hem, haw, and spin all you like. You will never run from YOUR record of the last eight years! At least NOW, spending will go toward THE PEOPLE. (which must be killing you guys softly... imagine the outrageous audacity of that)....

    and as ANY and ALL of you respond to me... i CHALLENGE you to FIRST ADMIT THE RIDICULOUS SPENDING OF THE BUSH ERA PUT.... US..... HERE.....

    if you don't admit that..... you have even LESS credibility. PERIOD.

    "Park City police told the paper that the thief was likely someone who had access to the house. There was no sign of forced entry." Hmmm, first he sells his ski chalet and now some jewelry has been 'stolen'. Perhaps Mittens isn't quite the financial genius he purports and needs some quick cash?

    A local "bail-out"?

    Why talk about a thief and overlook the release of an al qaeda terrorist released a few days ago from G-Bay and is now in England? Lucky if he can get money from the insurance company. Companies like AIG is still in need of bailout money.

    What goes around comes around. How long will the poor, the homeless and the unemployed stand by and see our lavish lifestyle before they come over the wall to take food from our pantries, and whatever else they can sell to purchase food for themselves?
    If he had given away the millions which he spent seeking to be president his reputation as a very rich man might not have gone abroad, giving the thief the idea that Mr Romney can afford it.

    There will be other leaders who will be victims in this unstable economy. So sorry to read about this incident.

    Must not have been very important pieces, if they were left in a home that's up for sale. Besides, whatever the value, it's chump change to them. It's not like they'll be homeless or bankrupt.
    If this is meant to elicit some sort of sympathy, I can tell them where to find it in the dictionary....

    Do we really care? He'll get more from the insurance than it was worth anyway. This is hardly news.

    I'm an independent Obama supporter, but I wouldn't put it past Acorn or Moveon.org people to break into Romney's house. By reading some of the far left posts here if I was Romney or any other Repub I'd get a bodyguard. Those guys are whackos.
