MIAMI (AP) - Thieves made off with an estimated $340,000 in jewelry from Miami Heat star Chris Bosh's home while he was out celebrating his birthday.
Miami Beach police say Bosh called them about 12:30 a.m. Thursday after he and his wife returned from his well-publicized party at South Beach's Bamboo nightclub. The couple noticed a jewelry drawer was open and numerous watches, rings and purses were missing.
Police say there was no sign of forced entry at the Bosh home. Also some easily recognizable items such as Bosh's Heat championship ring were left behind.
Authorities are interviewing housekeepers and checking anyone else who may have had recent access to Bosh's home.
Bosh was celebrating his 29th birthday.
