Residents on the Peninsula are being warned of a new scheme with thieves posing as door-to-door magazine sales people.

The San Mateo County sheriff's office says on Sunday night in San Carlos a man and a woman pretending to be solicitors entered a home after asking to use the bathroom.

They took jewelry from that home. Sheriff's officials did not release an address. They're urging residents, especially in San Carlos not to answer solicitors or let them in the house.
