JUNEAU, Alaska — Juneau police are investigating a burglary in which they say more than $40,000 in jewelry was taken from Costco.

Police say they received a report around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday that the store's burglar alarm had been triggered. Responding officers spoke with someone who reported seeing a shorter white man, with brown hair and possibly a Carhartt-style jacket running off.

Police say they found no signs of forced entry, suggesting someone waited inside until the store closed. A jewelry case was smashed and items including watches, rings and necklaces were missing.

Police are looking for any possible witnesses or anyone in the area with a video surveillance system.
