LeBron James has beefed up security at his Brentwood home, bringing a team of armed guards to patrol his house after learning he was targeted by a team of burglars, it was reported Thursday.
The Los Angeles Police Department arrested four people who allegedly had hit more than 24 homes of the rich and famous, including Yasiel Puig, Rihanna, Christina Milian and others. Police say the burglars ad guys had a list of 12 more celebrity targets — including LeBron, Matt Damon and Viola Davis.
With a wife and three children at home, the new Laker took the situation seriously and made arrangements to protect his family.
Sources told the celebrity news website TMZ.com that he has at least 10 armed security personnel at the home, including off-duty police officers. The NBA’s security team is also involved in the security plans, TMZ reported.
L.A. Rams star Robert Woods, whose home was burglarized, is working with the NFL security team to ensure his safety as well, according to TMZ.
