In a week that saw the Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh’s home robbed of over $300k in jewelry, watches and designer bags, Bosh wasn’t the only victim of a burglary last week. San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich’s home was burglarized too.
Among the items taken was the Spurs head coach’s Air Force Academy class ring.
“A recent bump in burglaries in The Dominion, including one at the home of Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, whose Air Force Academy class ring was stolen, has some residents on alert and the homeowners association working with police to find the culprits. According to police data, since the start of the year there have been 11 burglaries and four thefts in the enclave known for its high-profile residents, pricey homes and tight security. … A person doing rounds checked on the house and saw an open gate, which was suspicious, a police report said. Inside the gate a glass door was broken, the report said. One room was ransacked, the report said. Aside from the coach’s ring, a diamond bracelet also was stolen. Popovich declined to comment.”
Obviously with celebs and athletes – even pseudo ones at this point with the popularity of Twitter and Instagram stars – when you’re away from hime, it’s pretty well documented. The scary thing in both of these crimes is that security systems and gated areas were implemented. No matter how safe you feel you are, if someone has a will, they will find a way.
