PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Philadelphia police say someone broke into a home belonging to Eagles star receiver DeSean Jackson and stole a handgun, cash and jewelry. While initial reports said the amount of cash stolen was $250,000, is reporting that the amount was much less. What’s not in dispute is that Jackson is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension of the robbers.

“DeSean is clearly upset that his home was burglarized while he was out of town on vacation. He has always felt very safe in his community, and it concerns him someone would victimize his place of residence,” Denise White, Jackson’s publicist told “He had personal items, jewelry and a small amount of money taken in the burglary, however the amount that has been previously reported is inaccurate.” 

Jackson was in Miami when the burglary took place.

Investigators said Saturday the burglary happened sometime earlier in the week at Jackson’s home in South Philadelphia, not far from the team’s practice facility.

Initial reports stated that there was no forced entry at Jackson’s South Philadelphia residence. Two safes were cracked open and one is missing. Police say the cash and jewelry was taken from a safe. A silver 9mm handgun is also 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.
