    A visit to the city of San Francisco for Alex Trebek included chasing down a woman who allegedly broke into his hotel room and stole cash and jewelry.

    The San Francisco woman accused of breaking into the hotel room of "Jeopardy!'' host Alex Trebek appeared in court Monday.
            Lucinda Moyers was arraigned in San Francisco Superior Court. She plea not guilty. Last Thursday, Judge Jeff Ross set Moyers' bail at $625,000 and ordered her to stay at least 150 feet away from Trebek and his wife Jean.

            The 56-year-old Moyers was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of felony burglary and possession of stolen property. She's accused of stealing cash, a bracelet and other items from the room where  Trebek was staying with his wife, Jean.
            All of the items except the cash and bracelet were recovered. Trebek told reporters last week he thought the woman who robbed him stashed those items somewhere in the hotel and hoped they would be found at some point.
            Trebek said he chased Moyers out of his room at the Marriot Marquis. He ruptured his Achilles tendon in the process and is currently on crutches.
      He was scheduled to have surgery on the tendon late last week.
