Miami Beach Police released surveillance video related to a burglary at Miami Heat player Chris Bosh's home in April where $340,000 worth of jewelry and purses were stolen, but his 2012 NBA Championship ring was left untouched.
The video shows two men jumping the perimeter wall of Bosh's house and entering his property. Police said they have no new leads and are hoping the public will come foward with information.
In April, Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne returned home from his 29th birthday party to find they had been robbed. Police said they got the call about the burglary at 12:30 a.m.
Bosh and his wife had left their two children and a teenager at home with two babysitters at 7:30 p.m. and they headed out to celebrate his birthday at Briza on the Bay on Bayshore Drive in Miami, the case report said.
When the Boshes got home, they realized their closet had been ransacked, police said. Bosh contacted his security director and assistant.. No one who was home heard anything, and apparently the thieves handpicked the items they were stealing, police said. There was no sign of forced entry into the home.
Bosh's Championship ring was spared, but they took what they wanted from jewelry box, including watches and rings, police said. Bosh's wife said purses totaling about $155,000 were taken, along with $15,000 cash and 12 watches worth $300,000.
Bosh told police there was surveillance video and an alarm at the home. The alarm was not activated because the babysitters were home. But police noticed that a back door on the side of the home overlooking the bay was unlocked and the front door had been unlocked when the Boshes came home.
Bosh joined the Heat in the summer of 2010 through a sign-and-trade deal with the Toronto Raptors, who drafted him in 2003. A member of Miami's famed Big Three with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, Bosh has appeared in three All-Star Games as a member of the Heat (eight total including his appearances as a Raptor). He has been the Heat's third-leading scorer each season (behind James and Wade).
In the 2012-13 season, Bosh averaged 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. His blocked shot against Danny Green sealed a win for Miami in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last week, helping set the stage for the Heat's Game 7 triumph two days later.
