Chris Bosh celebrated his 29th birthday on Wednesday night and the festivities turned out to be more costly than he anticipated. According to NBC 6 in South Florida, Bosh and his wife returned to their home early Thursday morning and discovered that they had been the victims of a burglary.
Police said the Boshs came home to a closet that had been ransacked and roughly $340,000 in possessions were missing. Watches, rings and other jewelry were reportedly among the stolen items. Fortunately, Bosh’s 2012 Miami Heat NBA championship ring was left untouched.
Two housekeepers who were home with Bosh’s children on Wednesday night are being interviewed. Police are also checking to see if any contractors had been working at the house recently.
“We are leaning on the side of this being an inside job,” Miami Beach Police spokesman Bobby Hernandez said.
Unlike the NFL player who recently had $500,000 worth of jewelry stolen from his hotel room, Bosh’s possessions were taken from his own home. While no one ever wants to lose over $300,000 worth of stuff, I’m sure Bosh is relieved that his family is safe and he still has his championship ring. As this former Boston Red Sox pitcher or this former Tampa Bay Rays pitcher could tell you, losing a priceless piece of hardware like that is not fun.
