Pacers star forward’s home burglarized during Game 5

Follow The Republic:

 INDIANAPOLIS — Pacers star Paul George had his platinum All-Star ring valued at $15,000 stolen from his home Monday night.

The Indianapolis police report said there was no forced entry in the burglary, estimating the total value of items taken at nearly $16,000. The ring from the 2014 game included multiple diamonds. Also taken was a watch valued at $700.

“It’s being investigated now and that’s all I’ll say about it,” George said.

George’s parents, who attended Monday night’s playoff game against Atlanta, reported the theft shortly before midnight and not long after the Pacers lost 107-97 to fall into a 3-2 deficit in their best-of-seven series against the Hawks.

A pair of sneakers, valued at $170, and a $20 bill also were reportedly taken.

The police report estimates the total value of items taken at nearly $16,000.

The theft occurred between 7:15 and 11:45 p.m., according to the police report.

Indianapolis police said there were no signs of forced entry, and the home alarm system was not set. The All-Star small forward’s parents told police that they did not lock the home when they left because they didn’t have a key to get back inside.

George led the Pacers with 26 points and 12 rebounds Monday night.

He is averaging 22.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game in the playoffs.

Game 6 is Thursday night in Atlanta.
