DOUGLASTON — Police were investigating who stole more than $200,000 in cash from a Marathon Parkway resident Saturday night.

Police said a resident of the 49th Avenue block of Marathon Parkway had more than $200,000, Rolex watches, pearls and other jewelry stolen from his home between 7:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Saturday night.

Police said the unknown perpetrator entered the residence by prying open a rear sliding door before ransacking the home and making off with the valuables. Police said there were no suspects in the case as of Tuesday, but said a neighbor saw a 20−to−­25−year­old Hispanic man get out of a tan Lincoln town car and walk to the back of the residence shortly before the burglary took place.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1−800−­577−TIPS or by logging on to the Crime Stoppers Web site at nypdcrimestoppers.com. All calls will remain confidential.
