The home of former Chargers star Junior Seau was burglarized last week, just days after he was found dead, the North County Times reported Tuesday.
Seau, who played in the NFL for 20 seasons, was found dead by his girlfriend inside their home in Oceanside, near San Diego, on May 2, with a gunshot wound to his chest. His death was ruled a suicide.
Police said Tuesday that burglars broke into the garage of the house at around 2 p.m. on May 7, after forcing their way in through a doggy door.
They stole a $500 bicycle that belonged to one of Seau's friends and rummaged through cabinets in the garage.
Police do not believe that anything else was taken and the burglars did not break into the main part of the house.
The Chargers and their fans honored Seau last Friday by officially retiring his uniform number, 55. Team president Dean Spanos made the announcement toward the end of the "celebration of life" ceremony at Qualcomm Stadium.
