Pro Football Hall of Famer and Fox Sports media personality Shannon Sharpe’s Los Angeles home was burglarized last week, and over $1 million worth of items were stolen
The thieves stole items such as watches, jewelry and designer bags from the home.
Sharpe contacted the police on May 19 after returning home from dinner and realizing something wasn’t right in the home.
Sharpe contacted the police, telling the cops that he was missing expensive watches, designer bags and jewellery. Authorities revealed there were no obvious signs of forced entry, although an investigation into the robbery is ongoing.
While no arrests have yet been made, Sharpe clearly wants to see some level of punishment. The former tight end posted a $50,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and a conviction.
The robbery Is the latest example of a thief targeting a sporting icon and his home after Michael Jordan’s Chicago home was broken into last month.
Jordan’s home – which is valued at an eye-watering $15m – was quickly visited by police who found the teenage trespasser still inside.
The perpetrator was named as Raiden Hagedorn as he was charged with criminal trespass to an occupied residence and two counts of criminal damage to property, which are all misdemeanours.
Like in Sharpe’s case, Jordan was not inside the 56,000-square-foot home when the incident went down.
He has reportedly not lived at the address since he placed it on the market back in 2012 with the six-time NBA champion initially putting it up for sale for $29m.
Despite losing nearly $1 million in valuables that the alleged thieves made off with, Sharpe has put up his own money as a reward for any information that leads to an arrest.

In addition to the burglary of his home, the Hall-of-Fame tight end has made headlines with his remarks about retired NBA player Kwame Brown, whom he says should be on “the Mount Rushmore” of NBA busts.
On Thursday (May 25), Sharpe reacted to critical comments made by Brown about LeBron James, whom Sharpe is a staunch supporter of, during an episode of Undisputed.
