If you’re an NBA player in the Miami area, home safety has to be high on your list of concerns. Ray Allen becomes the fourth Miami Heat player in the last year whose home has been broken into or a victim of robbery.
In Allen’s case, his wife and children were home alone when teens decided it would be cool at 2 AM to check where Ray Allen lives.
Allen wasn’t home, but his wife, Shannon Walker Allen, and their kids were sleeping upstairs, according to Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Denham. When the intruders began walking around and making noise, Shannon Allen woke up and screamed, “What are you doing in my home?”
Common sense says you don’t go into private property at 2 AM whether you think it’s occupied or not. I would expect an alarm service to go off, especially if they thought he already moved.
No charges have been filed and, Ray Allen still hasn’t announced if he’s planning on playing next season.
