NBA.com Staff

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say an estimated $200,000 in watches, jewelry, high-end purses and cash were stolen from the home of former Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott.

The break-in at Scott’s Hermosa Beach house is the latest in a string of burglaries to hit celebrities in the Los Angeles area, including Nicki Minaj and Alanis Morissette.

Police who arrived at the house at 1:30 p.m. Saturday found a patio door had been forced open.

The beachfront city is about 20 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles.

Sgt. Robert Higgins told the Los Angeles Times that investigators don’t know if the burglary is related to others targeting celebrities.

The break-in is believed to have happened during an eight-hour period while Scott was away from his home.
