Indiana Pacers star Paul George isn’t one to flash his considerable material wealth on social networks. But that didn’t deter a brazen thief from burglarizing George’s manse last night while he and his teammates were being routed by the Atlanta Hawks in game 4 of the NBA playoffs.
When George returned to his upscale home on Diamond Pointe Drive last night, the police informed him he was burglarized between 7:15 and 11:45 p.m. Monday.
George’s parents, who live with him, discovered the break-in when they returned home from the game.
The thief made off with over $15,000 in watches, jewelry, and retro Air Jordan 4s — items that can be pawned for quick cash.
From ABC affiliate RTV6:
When George’s parents, who also live at the home, returned to the house late Monday night, they noticed drawers and cabinets were open throughout the home. An alarm on the door of the wine room was also going off, police said.
Police said there are no signs of forced entry at the home. George’s parents said they didn’t lock the door when they left the home earlier in the evening, because they didn’t have a key. The home’s alarm system was also not set, police said.
When the Georges got home, a door in the rear of the house was open, along with a balcony door in the master bedroom.
More than $15,000 worth of jewelry and shoes was taken in the burglary, police said.
Among the missing items: a 2014 Paul George NBA platinum All Star ring with diamonds, 15 watches and a pair of Air Jordan 4 “Toro” shoes. A $20 bill was also taken from the home.
