Chris Bosh returned home late Wednesday night to find out that hundreds of thousands of dollars in accessories had been stolen from his South Beach residence while he was out in Miami celebrating his 29th birthday with his wife.

According to a report Thursday from NBC Miami, approximately $470,000 worth of goods, from watches and jewelry to purses and cash, had been stolen from his home while he was out on the town. Miami Beach Police received a phone call made from the residence at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning saying that their closet had been "ransacked," according to the report. The Miami Heat forward and his wife had left their two children with two housekeepers while they were out, and no one home reported hearing anything.

Strangely enough, among all of the items that were stolen, Bosh's 2011-12 NBA championship ring was spared.

According to the NBC Miami report, police said they think it might be an "inside job" and they are checking surveillance video and looking to see if any contractors hired to work on the house had access to the residence or the property:

Bosh's Championship ring was spared, but they took what they wanted from jewelry box, including watches and rings, police said. Bosh's wife said purses totaling about $155,000 were taken, along with $15,000 cash and 12 watches worth $300,000. "We are leaning on the side of this being an inside job," said Miami Beach Police spokesman Bobby Hernandez.
