Home of Pacers’ Paul George burglarized during Monday’s game

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Nearly $16,000 worth of belongings were reported stolen from Paul George’s home, including his 2014 NBA All-Star Game ring.

According to an IMPD report, officers were called to his home in the 9200 block of Diamond Pointe Drive around 11:50 p.m. Monday. The most expensive item reported stolen was a 2014 platinum All-Star ring covered in diamonds. It’s valued at $15,000.

A $700 watch, a pair of Jordan shoes valued at $170 and $20 in cash were also missing. The police report states there were no signs of forced entry.

Police say George’s family members believe a door was left unlocked. They also did set the home security system.

George was short with his comments about the burglary after practice today.

“It’s under investigation. That’s all I have to say,” he said.

Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said it was tough news to stomach after Monday’s loss.

“Yeah we talked about it a little bit you know. It’s an unfortunate situation you know. It’s just kind of a kick in the gut so to speak. You lose a game like that then something like that happens and it leaves a real bad taste in your mouth,” Vogel said.

George lives in the Diamond Pointe neighborhood. Drivers who enter the neighborhood must pass through a gate.

Chris Anderson works in home management and has clients in George’s neighborhood. He was surprised to hear a burglary happened in what he calls a safe place to live.

“Some of our clients we work with, if a security alarm goes off or anything we might meet with neighborhood patrol out there, but it’s usually false alarms if anything,” Anderson said.

Police say they reviewed video from surveillance cameras inside George’s home. They say it showed someone walking around with a flashlight.

There are also surveillance cameras at the entrance and around the neighborhood. Police will review those cameras as well to find out how many people might be involved in the crime.
