Police investigating two major jewelry thefts at Trump Tower

MIDTOWN EAST, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police are investigating two major jewelry thefts at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, the same building that houses the president's Manhattan home.

Two women who live there tell police that jewelry went missing from their apartments while they were on vacation.

A 33-year-old says a diamond bracelet worth $117,000 disappeared sometime earlier this month from a 59th-floor apartment.

A 67-year-old says five pieces of jewelry worth $236,000 were stolen from her 42nd floor apartment sometime between June and September.

Detectives say there was no sign of a break-in at either apartment.

Police are currently investigating.

It is unclear at this time if one person is responsible, or if there are several thieves.
