( AP )- A burglar posing as a construction worker made away with about $100,000 worth of jewelry and electronics in a broad-daylight heist at Lesley Stahl's apartment, police said Friday.

Police wouldn't provide specifics, but the New York Post reported the burglar posed as a construction worker and stole several diamond watches, a pearl necklace, earrings, gold and silver necklaces and a laptop.

The break-in occurred during the morning of Jan. 25 at the "60 Minutes" correspondent's apartment overlooking Central Park.

Stahl, a former White House correspondent who has been on the CBS news magazine since 1991, wasn't home at the time. She had no comment on the burglary, a CBS-TV spokesman said.

The burglar reportedly went onto the roof, gained access by breaking a patio door and then ransacked the apartment Stahl shares with her husband, writer Aaron Latham, and daughter.
