New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell allegedly had over $500,000 worth of jewelry stolen from his Florida home by two female acquaintances. A police report obtained by The Associated Press refers to the women as his “girlfriends.”
Bell discovered the missing jewelry when he returned home from the gym on May 25. The three-time Pro Bowler told authorities that the items in his closet were also in disarray, and his girlfriends were nowhere to be found.
The items swiped from his residence include two gold chains with diamonds, a Black Panther pendant with black and white diamonds, and a Rolex watch, which have a combined value of $520,000. The Black Panther chain can be seen in the tweet below.
TMZ reports Bell informed the Jets of the jewelry theft after the incident occurred. Police are said to be conducting an investigation into the incident.
Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal with the Jets in March after sitting out the entire 2018 campaign over a contract dispute with his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bell’s contract comes with $35 million guaranteed, the second-largest for a running back, trailing only Todd Gurley.
