Chairman and Executive Director Brian Livingston told KTVK-TV that someone ransacked his house while he was at work Wednesday.
Livingston, a retired police officer, says the thief also made off with his badge and several valuable watches.
Livingston says this is the third break-in at his home in five years.
He says he is unsure if his ties to the clemency board are related to the crime.
The five-member board oversees monthly parole hearings and approves release of inmates.
Gov. Jan Brewer appointed Livingston to the board in April 2012.
