Nick Young’s home burglarized while he was enjoying NBA All-Star weekend

by Angela Davis/@jerseygirlsport Jersey Girl Sports fam professional athletes are just as susceptible to crime as we are, perhaps even more. While L.A. Lakers guard Nick Young was enjoying his NBA All-Star weekend, his home was being burglarized for over $500K in jewelry and other items.

The celebrity burglary thiefstravaganza continues … this time, crooks struck the L.A. home of Lakers star Nick Young (again!) and made off with $500k in cash and jewelry after taking his entire safe!!!
Law enforcement sources confirm …  Young’s Valley residence was hit in February when the bad guys entered through an unlocked door and pilfered the NBA star’s valuables.
We’re told crooks took roughly $30k in cash plus 3 gold chains, a custom ring and a locked safe containing other valuables.
Officer Lillian Preciado, a Los Angeles police spokeswoman, said detectives are investigating a break-in at a home in the 19000 block of Wells Street in Tarzana that occurred on Feb. 18 or 19, but she would not confirm the property belonged to Young. No one was home at the time, according to Preciado, who said thieves stole $500,000 in “jewelry and other items” from the residence.

Young and then-girlfriend Iggy Azaela purchased a $3.4-million Tarzana property from actress Selena Gomez in November 2014.

The break-in happened the same weekend the NBA was hosting its All-Star Game festivities in New Orleans. Young was on hand to compete in the three-point shooting contest, but got knocked out in the first round.
We're not sure if this burglary is related to any others, but we do know that Lakers legend Derek Fisher's home was also burglarized earlier this year when thieves took all five of his championship rings. We're not sure if these thefts are related, but it seems the criminals are focused in their attacks. The LAPD has declined to speculate. In the meantime, it would be smart for athletes to lock up their personal belongings in places outside of their homes. Especially when their whereabouts is public knowledge.
