All-Star ring stolen from Pacers Paul George, police say

INDIANAPOLIS — Pacers star Paul George had his platinum All-Star ring valued at $15,000 stolen from his home Monday night.

The Indianapolis police report said there was no forced entry in the burglary, estimating the total value of items taken at nearly $16,000. The ring from the 2014 game included multiple diamonds. Also taken was a watch valued at $700.

George’s parents, who attended Monday night’s playoff game against Atlanta, reported the theft shortly before midnight and not long after the Pacers lost 107-97 to fall into a 3-2 deficit in their best-of-seven series with the Hawks.

A pair of sneakers, valued at $170, and a $20 bill also were reportedly taken.
