TARZANA (CBSLA.com) — Burglars have targeted the home of Los Angeles Lakers’ guard Nick Young, police said Thursday.

Detectives said the thieves managed to get away with $500,000 in cash and jewelry on Feb. 18 or 19, while Young was at the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans.

CBS2’s Kara Finnstrom reported the crooks lifted Young’s entire safe.

The NBA star’s Sherman Oaks home was previously robbed in 2014. The burglars fled from the scene with about $100,000 in property.

According to police, there has been an uptick in celebrity homes being burglarized in recent months.

This year alone, the homes of Derek Fisher, Alanis Morrissette and Yasiel Puig were broken into.

It’s still unclear if the same suspects are targeting the properties.
