Police Wednesday were seeking three suspects who burglarized Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig’s Encino home.
The break-in — the second within a month at the residence in the 5300 block of Louise Avenue — occurred about 8 p.m. Tuesday while the right fielder was at Dodger Stadium for his team’s late-season walk-off win over the Colorado Rockies.
It was unclear whether anything was taken from the home. The suspects were described only as three men in their 20s who fled in a black four-door Toyota, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
TMZ.com reported that police were called to the residence after one of Puig’s assistants got a security alert on his phone, showing three men leaving the athlete’s property.
“Yasiel has a security camera set up that captures motion, and it automatically sends the video to a cell phone programmed to receive it,” according to TMZ. “When Yasiel’s associate saw the footage, he immediately called police … but the bad guys had already fled. We’re told the men broke in through the back door … smashing it open.”
This was the fourth time Puig has been the victim of a burglary in the past two years, according to TMZ.
Last November, Puig’s Encino residence was burglarized following the club’s loss to the Houston Astros in the seventh game of the World Series. In March 2017, a Sherman Oaks house belonging to Puig was targeted in a burglary that resulted in the loss of about $170,000 worth of jewelry.
