Utah Jazz's Talen Horton-Tucker Is Victim In Home Burglary, Thieves Steal $170k Worth Of Jewelry

Utah Jazz shooting guard Talen Horton-Tucker was the victim of a home robbery this past weekend, as he had his home in Los Angeles broken into. Reportedly, $170k worth of jewelry was taken, but no one was harmed, as the former Lakers player had not been in the area at the time of the crime.

A house-sitter first noticed the incident and contacted the police, then upon further review of the camera footage, it appears the burglars first entered the property by jumping over the back fence, subsequently exiting out one of the side yards.

Although the details are not clear at this time, evidently one of the suspects has been identified, but no arrest has been made.

To point out, this is the third robbery incident that occurred at an NBA player's house in the past month; Los Angeles Clippers' Ivica Zubac (May 22) and Patrick Patterson (June 7) also had their LA mansions burglarized. Furthermore, last year several Los Angeles Dodgers players were targeted in home and vehicle invasions, so unfortunately this is nothing new in the crime-ridden city.

Notably, Horton-Tucker has a 2020 NBA championship ring from his time on the Los Angeles Lakers (2019-2022), so it is unknown whether the player is still in possession of this memorabilia, or if that was one of the items taken by the thieves.

During five seasons playing in the NBA, Horton-Tucker has appeared in 247 games, averaging 9.8 points (42.3 FG%), 2.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.9 steals in 21.1 minutes per game.
