Stephen Jackson Loses Valuables in Home Robbery
Charlotte Bobcats guard-forward Stephen Jackson was victimized by a group of armed robbers on Wednesday, with the thieves carting away several luxury items and a gun in a daring robbery.
Reports said the robbers broke into Jackson’s $1.7-million home in a gated community while the basketball star was in Texas attending a camp. The three armed men locked Jackson’s wife, Renata, inside a bathroom and took a 9mm pistol, a Louis Vuitton wallet, and a ruby-encrusted wristwatch, among others, police said.
No suspects have been arrested in connection with the robbery as of Friday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department spokeswoman Officer Rosalyn Harrington said in an interview with the Associated Press.
Jackson and his wife have lived in the house since December last year, a month since the 10-year veteran was traded by the Golden State Warriors to the Bobcats. Former Bobcats guard Jason Richardson is listed as the owner of the 6,000-square-foot house, which includes three garages.
Jackson has yet to issue any comments about the robbery.
