While his team may be winning on the basketball court, Chris Bosh is losing at home. The Miami Heat forward’s mansion was burglarized of $340,ooo worth of jewelry. Damn homie.
Chris Bosh is missing $340k in jewelry … after burglars struck his Miami home early this morning while the NBA star was out celebrating his birthday … this according to police.
Miami Beach PD says Bosh called cops around 12:30 AM after he and his wife returned to their pad after partying at a nightclub in South Beach and noticed their house had been ransacked.
According to cops, Bosh noticed a jewelry drawer was open and several expensive items were missing — including watches, rings and purses.
Fortunately, cops say the bad guys didn’t take the Miami Heat star’s NBA championship ring.
Cops say there was no sign of forced entry and they’re currently trying to meet with anyone who has access to Bosh’s home.
It definitely seems like an inside job. Reports the NBA:
“We think it was probably an inside job,” Hernandez said. “It’s very difficult to prevent crimes such as this from happening.”
Police were interviewing Bosh’s housekeepers and anyone else, such as a contractor or repair person, who may have recently had access to the home. They were also fanning out to check local pawn shops for the stolen items.
Bosh, celebrating his 29th birthday, arrived at the party Wednesday night via helicopter and a yacht. Numerous local and social media sites reported that most fellow Heat players were there, including stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, many of them dressed in Saharan garb.
Guests were greeted by a pair of camels – Henri and Jacob – at the door and the birthday cake was a jewel-festooned chocolate elephant ridden by a miniature Bosh figure. Entertainment included belly dancers and fire eaters.
Hours before finding his crib in disarray, Boash had been celebrating his 29th birthday at Club Bamboo in Miami. Some of his teammates including Dwyane Wade, as well as Ne-Yo and Flo Rida, were all in the spot. Check out some photos from the party in the gallery.
