: Floyd Mayweather’s people reached out to MediaTakeOut.com and asked us to put out the word that some thieves burglarized his home and stole $7 million in jewelry. And that they’re offering $100,000 for any information on who did it.
Here is what Floyd’s rep sent us:
One afternoon in late August, someone broke into one of Floyd Mayweather’s homes and made off with his personal jewelry. This week Mayweather issued a $100,000 cash reward for information leading to the return of his property.
Mayweather confirmed that the jewelry is estimated to be valued at $7 million and was taken from one of his Las Vegas homes. The offense occurred on August 17, between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. The thieves apparently broke his bedroom window and entered while he was out of the house. No one was hurt and security is working around the clock to ensure that cameras and professional guards are posted. Only the jewelry was observed to be missing.
Anyone with information on this crime can call Sherbrook, Jelan and Associates at (678) 457-5858 or (404) 786-1321. Callers could be eligible for an immediate cash reward of $100,000 and may remain anonymous.
And to the fools who stole the jewels, watch out. MediaTakeOut.com spoke with someone close to Floyd who claims that they are getting close to fining who did it … and it looks like an inside job.
Word is that once they have enough evidence, that individual will be extremely sorry they tried to steal from the best fighter in the world.
