Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem's home burglarized
SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla. (WHDH) -- Deputies are searching for the burglars responsible for breaking into Miami Heat star Udonis Haslem's home.
According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, they responded to the Miami Heat forward's Southwest Ranches home on April 13 after a reported burglary, and he said he thinks he knows who tried to pull off the heist.
The police report states the criminal broke through the garage side door by prying the lock.
According to a police report, Haslem stated that an employee with a security company was at the home the day before the alleged break-in. Haslem mentioned the technician had worked on the same door where the crook, or crooks, made their point of entry.
Investigators said "the door frame was damaged" with pry marks. Haslem now wants to press charges on this individual.
Once the break-in occurred, the home's security system alarm went off and deputies rushed to the residence as Haslem drove back. In the end, no items were taken from the home. BSO believes the five-minute response by a deputy scared off the crooks.
BSO noticed in the master bedroom that the side table drawers were pulled out and ransacked. Haslem and detectives saw pry marks on a safe inside Haslem's closet but entry was not gained.
Haslem's fiancée's closet was also ransacked. Her shoes and purses were inside garbage bags that were sitting alongside the bed.
Several alarm boxes were ripped off the wall and left on the floor.
Haslem's break-in comes a few weeks after someone robbed Chris Bosh's home. "It's not a good feeling," said Bosh not long after that burglary.
While Bosh was out celebrating his 29th birthday on South Beach, a thief stole $480,000 worth of items from his Miami Beach home. Fifteen of Bosh's wife handbags and a dozen of his watches were stolen.
The security company has not commented.
