MANATEE COUNTY - A Suncoast couple inside an upscale gated community has learned that guards at the entrance do not guarantee that no one can sneak in and steal from your home.

When they left their home Saturday in the Waterlefe community in Manatee County, they locked it up, but someone broke in trying to pry his way in through windows and doors, before finally finding one that gave way.

While inside, he skipped the T.V.s, and the computers, looking only for things he could carry in his pockets, and ended up stealing roughly $60,000 worth of jewelry and watches.

Manatee County deputies say they have no suspects.
