Indiana Pacers forward Paul George's home was burglarized on April 28.
TheIndyChannel.com reports on April 29 that more than $15,000 worth of items were stolen:
"A platinum NBA All-Star ring was among the items stolen from the Geist home of Pacers player Paul George on Monday night.
"Police were called to Geoge's home on Diamond Pointe Drive just before midnight on a report of theft.
"According to the police report, the theft happened between 7:15 and 11:45 p.m.
"When George's parents, who also live at the home, returned to the house late Monday night, they noticed drawers and cabinets were open throughout the home. An alarm on the door of the wine room was also going off, police said.
"Police said there are no signs of forced entry at the home. George's parents said they didn't lock the door when they left the home earlier in the evening, because they didn't have a key. The home's alarm system was also not set, police said.
"When the Georges got home, a door in the rear of the house was open, along with a balcony door in the master bedroom.
"More than $15,000 worth of jewelry and shoes were taken in the burglary, police said.
"Among the missing items: a 2014 Paul George NBA platinum All-Star ring with diamonds, 15 watches and a pair Air Jordan 4 'Toro' shoes. About $20 cash was also taken from the home.
"Investigators said they are reviewing surveillance footage from the property."
George was succint in his response regarding a comment about the incident, per WISH TV's Jeff Wagner. He said,"It's under investigation. That's all I have to say."
Pacers head coach Frank Vogel also spoke with Wagner about the burglary.
"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."
According to ESPN, the burglary took place during the Pacers' 107-97 Game 5 loss to the visiting Atlanta Hawks. George scored 26 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in a losing effort.
Game 6 will be in Atlanta on Thursday, May 1. The Hawks, who have a 3-2 series lead, can eliminate the Pacers from playoff contention with another win.
