Houston Rockets star Trevor Ariza is the latest victim in the L.A. celebrity burglary crime wave — this time, crooks jacked the NBA star for at least $50k in jewelry, law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports.
Here’s what we know … Ariza contacted police on Wednesday after noticing signs of forced entry at his San Fernando Valley home. No one was home at the time of the break-in.
We’re told Ariza believes the bad guys took several expensive items including jewelry — the losses are estimated to be north of $50k.
Ariza is the 3RD current or former Laker to be hit by burglars in 2017. Nick Young and Derek Fisher were also jacked.
Yasiel Puig — who lives in the area — was hit back in March.
We’re told law enforcement has created task forces to find the burglars — and have put undercover officers in the area in the hopes of catching these guys in the act.
