Police: DeSean Jackson’s Philadelphia Home Robbed of More Than $250,000 in Cash, Jewelry

Someone broke into a home belonging to Eagles star receiver DeSean Jackson and stole a handgun and more than $250,000 in cash and jewelry, according to Philadelphia police.

Investigators said Saturday that the burglary happened sometime earlier in the week at Jackson’s home in South Philadelphia — not far from the Eagles’ practice facility. Police say the cash and jewelry were taken from a safe. A silver 9 mm handgun also is missing.

No arrests have been made. A police spokeswoman says the investigation is ongoing.

Jackson was the Eagles’ leading receiver this season with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. He signed a five-year, $51 million contract before the 2012 season.
