(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 always thought that if you lived in the homes you had, then you were less likely to be robbed.

    I am hoping the Insurance company does an investigation.

    This man is a Republican and that certifies he is a lier and a crook.
    He probably did this or had it done to collect insurance money.
    Something bush and cheney would do.

    The Revolution has started.

    Citizens are going to come for the law makers and drag them out of their offices

    Shame that CNN can't tell the difference between a Robbery and a Burglary. The home was burgled.

    i'm sorry the romneys were robbed, but what about all the Americans that have been robbed of their entire life savings, while the ceo,s are still giving their selves big bonuses, still flying in their private jets, still not caring what happens to the working Americans, i'm sure insurance will replace the romneys loss, but what about America's loss???

    This kind of thing happens all the time, they call it insurance fraud.

    I like Romney, but who cares? This isn't news. Had they trashed the place and claimed it was because he is mormon, that would be news.

    Who Cares? He is soooo rich Iam surprised he even noticed. But I am sure the people he downsized from their jobs, when he was in management, would like thier quality of life and income he stole from them back.

    Is he going to grill his 14 sons to squeeze the truth out of them?

    Hey Mitt, little hint. When you put up your house for sale REMOVE ALL VALUBLES!!! Little common sense, guess if you are rich you don't need it.

    Cant say I will shed a tear for him. I will save my tears for those who have been hurt by the stupidity of people like him and the rest of the GOP.

    It was probably Obambi and his cronies. They are into wealth redistribution. It wouldn't surprise me if they took it and gave it to their poor friends. Oh wait, they don't have poor friends. Maybe they gave it to their buddies who are not paying their taxes.

    Security begins at the home, Mitt. Perhaps, you're better off leaving national security in the hands of others.

    This is no news. I am sure they had insurance and burglarys happen often. Are we that desperate for news or are we just trying to keep the GOP candidate in the news?
