Wednesday night, April 4th, Miami Heat NBA player Chris Bosh was out celebrating his birthday with his wife at a South Beach night club. When he and his wife returned to their home around 12:30am they stumbled upon the worst B-Day gift ever…their house had been ransacked and robbed!
Bosh called police and reported 12 watches, 2 rings, purses, and $20,000.00 in cash was stolen. The value of the expensive goods taken was estimated at a whopping $340,000.00, the cost of a house!
Lucky for Bosh, the robbers must have known it was his birthday because they did not steal Bosh’s 2012 NBA championship ring, which was found on the closet floor.
Police are reviewing the home’s video surveillance system and surrounding neighborhood cameras hoping for a lead to catch the crooks. If caught, the criminals will most likely be charged with residential burglary and theft. Residential burglary is a class B felony with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prision and $20,000.00 fine.
Earlier this week, Justin Beiber sent tweets to his almost 29 million twitter followers that he was a victim of theft at his concert held in Tacoma, Washington. A laptop computer and a camera were listed as stolen by Justin. A police report was never filed and therefore no police investigation ever occured. Fans and social media became suspicious of Justin and his actions concerning this criminal act. Was this a PR stunt by Justin? Yes! As it turns out an unknown source under the twitter account @gexwy, tweeted on Thursday they had possession of J.B.’s items and released a personal home video, according to IBTimes. Amongst many tweets that occurred between Justin and @gexwy, was the tweet by @gexwy that they would show more personal Beiber footage on Friday at noon. Justin’s millions of followers flocked in anticipation, what could it be? Not too suprisingly it was J.B.’s new music video “Beauty and the Beat.”
Along with the music video Justin provided a string of tweets giving motive for the childish hoax “since i was 14 i have had a lot of things said about me, from dying, to taking hormones, to dying again, to stuff about my family… to saying i had a baby with a woman i never even met. nude pics, drugs, my family, my character…but today…today i get to be in on it…”
No harm, no foul, no crime committed, just a few lies.
