Yasiel Puig’s home burglarized during Game 7 loss in World Series
A home owned by Yasiel Puig was burglarized on Wednesday night as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost 5-1 to the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the World Series, per a report from TMZ Sports.
In a cruel example of adding insult to injury, the Dodgers slugger closed out his heartbreaking evening by talking with police officers at his San Fernando Valley, Calif., home, which Puig recently purchased for $2.65 million, per NBC Los Angeles. The report indicates the suspect made off with some jewelry.
The situation could have been far worse but the losses were mitigated in part by the burglar being scared off by the home’s alarm system, according to law enforcement sources. A monetary value of the losses Puig sustained is unknown at this time.
The entire incident was captured on surveillance video.
Unfortunately for Puig, this is the second burglary he has experienced this year. Back in March, Puig had approximately $500,000 in jewelry stolen, although that occurred at a different home he owns.
Still, Wednesday’s burglary has to especially sting for Puig in light of the timing of it all. Talk about a rough night for Puig.
