12Alameda police are investigating the apparent theft of $312,000 worth of jewelry belonging to former Oakland Raider Jerry Porter.

Alameda Police Sgt. Jill Ottaviano said Porter, who was initially identified as the victim in a report in the Alameda Journal, had stopped for a facial at a salon in Oakland’s Montclair district and that he had taken off his jewelry and placed it in a leather Prada toiletry bag under the seat in his car, which police said was a black BMW M6.

The car was later shipped to Miami Beach, where Porter said he is moving, and where he said he discovered the jewelry was missing. Police said the jewelry disappeared sometime between December 7 and December 17. Porter, who is an Alameda resident, reported it stolen to police last Thursday.

The missing jewelry includes a $40,000 watch, a pair of 10 karat diamond post earrings worth $70,000 and a gold-and-diamond pendant shaped like the cartoon mouse Jerry from the Tom & Jerry cartoon series worth $18,000, Ottaviano said.

She said the car showed no signs of forced entry.

Porter, 31, is a wide receiver who played for the Raiders from 2000 to 2007. He is currently a free agent.
