Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and hiss wife Ann discovered a theft of jewelry in a bedroom of the Deer Valley ski mansion on Feb. 17.
According to Park City Police Chief Wade Carpenter there was no sign of forced entry into the house and nothing else was disturbed.
“It was someone who had access to the residence,” he said.
Multiple workers had entered the home for repairs on a shower and other parts of the house at the time of the theft, which happened between Jan. 5 and Feb. 17, he said.
No value or description of the jewelry was immediately available. Investigators are getting a complete description of the lost items and are gathering a list of workers who had access to the house.
Located in Deer Valley, the 9,500-square-foot ski villa is on the market for $5.25 million. A spokesman said last week the Romneys are selling the Deer Valley home and another in Massachusetts because they had “more space” than they needed.
A Romney spokesman could not be immediately reached for comment.
Romney ran the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City and served as governor of Massachusetts before mounting a failed run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008.
Does this mean Mr. Romney will not be seeking election from either Utah or Massachusetts? That was not revealed, but we know he also has a house near San Diego, California which the couple uses to vacation. This home has expansive Pacific Ocean views and apparently is just above a very picturesque part of California and includes white water breakers below clearly visable from the home. It is not a mansion, by ordinary measures, because its size is about 3,000 square feet compared to the Utah mansion described in the photos above.
If Mitt and Ann Romney were real smart, which I believe they are, they would take a look at Don White’s great new book called SELLING FAST: We Sold Our House In One Day And You Can Too. It’s a 270-page E-Book featured at Amazon.com right now. In it, home owners can see how Don and Carolyn White prepare a home before sale, how they outsmart the other folks selling homes, how they find the best realtor on the block, how they present the home to the public, and how they sell homes they have lived in — and that’s been plenty — and get top dollar, even during a recession, which they have done.
