Toronto Raptors star point guard Kyle Lowry’s Philadelphia home was allegedly robbed in what authorities are calling a million-dollar burglary ring.
Here is an excerpt from the police report:
Police said the store amounted to a front, where millions of dollars of stolen jewelry were moved, resold or melted down. Shazad is described in court papers as “the fence” of the criminal organization. Each defendant is charged with a slew of felony counts, including a corrupt organizations charge.
Lowry wasn’t the only victim, in fact, the thieves made away with more than $1.5 million in jewelry from a number of neighborhoods in the area. The thieves would later go on and sell some of the stolen jewelry.
Authorities were able to catch up with one of the suspects, Wasim Shazad, the alleged ringleader.
