DeSean Jackson offering $50,000 reward in burglary case

00dd5b53898147742857e35600e888d7 AP

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is hoping that someone knows who burglarized his Philadelphia home.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Jackson is offering a $50,000 reward in exchange for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators.

Burglars reportedly took $250,000 in cash, $125,000 in jewelry, and two semi-automatic handguns from Jackson’s home while breaking open two safes and stealing another. Reports indicate there were no signs of forced entry and Jackson’s mother told police that some of Jackson’s friends had access to the house when Jackson wasn’t there. Jackson was in Miami this week and his mother discovered the burglary on Saturday morning.

Police said that an investigation is ongoing and that no arrests have been made at this point.

    Start questioning your “friends” who had free access to your home.

  3. prosourcetalk says: Jan 12, 2014 7:29 PM

    No wonder he wants a new contract, what an idiot.

    My money says the perp who stole his stuff is on Jackson’s cell phone contacts list.

  9. fdugrad says: Jan 12, 2014 7:37 PM

    Mom’s boyfriend. Just a guess.

  11. floratiotime says: Jan 12, 2014 7:44 PM

    I can picture the Mystery Machine pulling up to the curb as DeSean sparks up a fat one.

  12. chut26 says: Jan 12, 2014 7:46 PM

    Wonder if that is guaranteed $50,000? Maybe I should holdout until it is.

  13. yousuxxors says: Jan 12, 2014 7:46 PM

    nice friends

  14. dankil13 says: Jan 12, 2014 7:47 PM

    Jackson was in Miami and letting everyone on his Instagram feed including his friends about his house was ripe for picking… you can’t teach stupid!!!

  15. hightopandrocket says: Jan 12, 2014 7:48 PM

    Why do you have a quarter million dollars cash, IRS might be a calling…

  16. vikesdynasty says: Jan 12, 2014 7:50 PM

    Who keeps 250k in cash lying around your house? Idiots that’s for sure. These guys are as dumb as a box of rocks. Especially WRs

  17. robuff716 says: Jan 12, 2014 7:53 PM

    All these comments are FUNNY!

  18. oscojoe says: Jan 12, 2014 7:59 PM

    A few things don’t add up, Something fishy here, my six sense tells me they need to look into Jackson and his pals working together on this.

  19. phillyphannnn83 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:00 PM

    Does he really think he’s going to be paying one of his friends to rat out one of his other friends?

  23. hehateme1 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:08 PM

  24. wishingtonredslur says: Jan 12, 2014 8:08 PM

  28. udontknowjacku says: Jan 12, 2014 8:11 PM

  29. upperdecker19 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:16 PM

    Shouldn’t have bought the security guard a rocking chair

  30. skooter519 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:17 PM

    You would think that someone that rich would at least have a top of the line alarm system, something is a little fishy here.

  31. gittlove21 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:20 PM

    I bet the safe was hidden behind an eagles poster of himself. I doubt his friends robbed him but gave someone else the info that you’re out of town!!

  32. phillyphannnn83 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:23 PM

    Had to post this on the earlier story, guess it has to be posted here too for all the low IQs in the room…

    250k is 81% of his

  33. thebigwhitecat says: Jan 12, 2014 8:33 PM

    What do these players’ agents do to earn their commission, other than say, “Sign here.”? Don’t they offer them financial advice? Like don’t keep
    $250K in cash in your house? That would be good financial advice.

  34. fearthehoody says: Jan 12, 2014 8:34 PM

    Look into an offshore bank account like all smart rich people!

  35. shtzngigglz says: Jan 12, 2014 8:38 PM

    This sucks for anyone I must say. However, i hope regardless of the outcome it teaches people a few important things.

    1. Valuable things in your home requires a high quality video surveillance system of the area with the goods.

    2. Dont advertise the types of stuff in your home to ANYONE.

    3. Never let people have access to your home if you are not there.

  36. phillyphannnn83 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:39 PM

    …$250k is 81% of his $306,000+ game checks. Most of us get paid bi-weekly. That amounts to 40% of his bi-weekly pay. So ask yourself before saying foolish things like “why does he have 250k in his house” and “the IRS is gonna be calling”, do I have 40% of my paycheck stashed away in my house? I’d hope everyone has an emergency fund of a lot more than that stashed in their home for quick access. And before you start to criticize that, its as much his right to decide how much he needs/wants as an emergency fund. Not only that, he had it in 3 different safes! That was beyond smart!! He didn’t have it easily accessible and it wasn’t all in one spot, it was spread around!!

    Us ordinary folks have to remember that these millionaires live on a different level than we do, in a different world. While 250k is more than probably everyone reading and writing this post makes in a year, it equates to a couple hundred bucks for them. Assuming its from something illegal is just plain ignorant.

    He learned the hard way; friends are just enemies you haven’t made yet.

  38. yate3097 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:52 PM

    I’m sure his checks from the Eagles are direct deposited.

    Very, very few bank branches keep enough cash on hand to cash a check for $306,000. For what purpose would you ever even want to cash a check of that size?

  39. sidk1121 says: Jan 12, 2014 8:54 PM

    “Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is hoping that someone knows who burglarized his Philadelphia home.”

    Since when has “burglarized” been an actual word?

  40. 1964bclions says: Jan 12, 2014 8:57 PM

    $250,000.

    Perhaps he pays himself a higher interest rate than the Bank of America?

  41. ken2016 says: Jan 12, 2014 9:00 PM

    Michael Vick and his brother did it! dog fighting doesn’t come cheap!

    People who annoy you

  44. badmoonrison says: Jan 12, 2014 9:10 PM

    Desean should offer $50,000 for some extra brain cells or maybe an education.

  45. volcom2143 says: Jan 12, 2014 9:24 PM

    Does Drew Rosenhaus have an alibi ? Prob just taking back what d jax owes him

  46. lbijake says: Jan 12, 2014 9:25 PM

    Should have offered a $300,000 reward. Then your other friends would turn the culprits.

  47. bhindenemylines says: Jan 12, 2014 9:40 PM

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Karma, DeSean. Look it up.

  48. bkg63 says: Jan 12, 2014 9:45 PM

    Maybe DeSean should give a listen to The O’Jays’ “Backstabbers”…..

  49. ducksk says: Jan 12, 2014 10:24 PM

    Least he will never have a SB ring to get stolen.

  50. jblokhed says: Jan 12, 2014 10:27 PM

    The next time someone tries to serve up some load of crap about an athlete being some kind of intellectual because they went to Cal remember this story.

  51. natelan69 says: Jan 12, 2014 10:41 PM

    Many thanks to another “responsible gun owner” for letting two more guns fall into the hands of criminals.

    500,000 (yes, five hundred thousand!) guns are stolen from Americans every year.

  52. akboot says: Jan 12, 2014 10:48 PM

    I’m soooo glad he’s not on my level, and in a different world than me. He is “stupid”, and I don’t like hanging out with stupid people, especially rich ones without a lick of common sense.

  53. khmerson562 says: Jan 12, 2014 10:53 PM

    Come back to the LBC desean

  54. jdphx says: Jan 12, 2014 10:56 PM

    “breaking open two safes and stealing another”

    They BROKE open the safes? Were they plastic?

  55. fordmandalay says: Jan 12, 2014 11:07 PM

    To show you how bright his crew is; the buddy who stole the $250,000 will probably turn himself in to get the $50,000 reward.

  56. yojoemama says: Jan 12, 2014 11:29 PM

    Good chance this is insurance FRAUD by Jackson. Here are the facts:

    -Jackson complained last week about not earning enough in his contract
    -Eagles ignored his contract complaint
    -Jackson’s home is located in secured gated community
    -Jackson’s home gets burglarized
    -No forced entry

    Hmmmmm, desperate times call for desperate measures.

  57. raiderheart says: Jan 12, 2014 11:56 PM

    Has anyone confirmed Ryan Leafs whereabouts?

  58. harvarddent says: Jan 12, 2014 11:57 PM

    Hahahahahahahahaha!

  59. nytitancl says: Jan 13, 2014 12:54 AM

    They would have stolen more, but they dropped some loot just before they crossed the threshold…

  60. mysterytonite says: Jan 13, 2014 9:57 AM

    250,000 > 50,000
