Police are searching for burglars who made off with more than $100,000 in valuables from three apartments in an Upper East Side building in the last week.The building's tenant list reportedly reads like a Who's Who of city government officials, according to the New York Post.

The newspaper reports that the thieves hit three apartments at 215 East 68th Street since September 2. Police say there were no signs of forced entry in any of the cases, leading them to believe it may be an inside job.

The Post says the rent-stabilized building is home to numerous New York City dignitaries, including former Mayor David Dinkins, County Clerk Norman Goodman, ex-NYPD chief Howard Safir, former FDNY commissioner Thomas Von Essen and former Fox 5 anchor John Roland.

Building officials reportedly distributed notices of the incidents to tenants of the more than 600 apartments.
