Ray Allen's Home Broken Into While Wife and Children Sleep

A group of teenagers may have just single-handedly ruined the chances of the Miami Heat getting Ray Allen back after they broke into his home in the middle of the night, while his wife and children were sleeping.

According to police, the break-in happened Thursday morning around 2:30 at the Allens' mansion on Tahiti Beach Island Road in Coral Gables.

Nothing was stolen, and it appears that the teens wanted to break in simply to have a look at the Miami Heat star's house. But they were chased off when Allen's wife, Shannon, woke up and began screaming at them.

According to police, six men and a woman between the ages of 18 and 19 from a party next door decided they wanted to get a look at Ray Allen's house -- from the inside.

The group of teens entered through an unlocked back door that had a busted lock on it. But Shannon was startled awake by the group's noise and began shouting at them, according to NBCMiami.

"What are you doing in my house?" she screamed.

Officer Kelly Denham tells the Sun Sentinel that Ray and Shannon's children were also sleeping inside when the group broke in.

"She could hear them running away," Denham says. "She basically scared them away with her yelling."

Shannon heard the woman in the group exclaim, "Oh my God!" before the group began laughing and ran out of the house.

Police say that the teens told their parents what had happened and that the parents had them go to the police and admit to breaking into the house.

The teens explained that they thought Ray Allen had decided to join LeBron James in Cleveland and that the house was empty. No reports anywhere say Allen has signed with Cleveland, although there have been rumors that he's leaning toward joining James and the Cavaliers.

The teens told police they thought it would be cool to see Allen's house.

"They stated that they did enter the home," said Officer Denham. "They were there to see where Ray Allen had lived. They honestly thought that he had moved from the house."

This marks the third time a member of the Miami Heat has had his home broken into.

In April 2013, while Chris Bosh was out celebrating his birthday, a burglar broke into his Miami home and stole $340,000 worth of jewels, watches, and other valuables. The thief did manage to leave Bosh's championship ring behind.

A month after that, burglars broke into Udonis Haslem's Southwest Ranches home by prying open a lock in the garage. The home was ransacked, with suitcases and drawers thrown open. The burglars tried and failed to break into Haslem's safe. They ended up empty-handed.

As for Allen's break-in, Denham says the teens seem frightened over having to come forward, but none of them has been arrested or charged and probably won't be unless the Allens decide to press charges.

If so, the group could be looking at misdemeanor trespassing charges.

Ray himself wasn't home. And he has yet to decide if he'll re-sign with the Heat, join LeBron in Cleveland, or simply retire.

But here's the kicker.

According to police, when the teens walked into the house, they saw a bunch of boxes and covered furniture.

Could these pranksters have inadvertently stumbled upon the Allens getting ready to move?

Either way, a break-in while your wife and children are asleep in the house might be the final thing to push Allen out if Miami.

Also, Allen needs to get that back-door lock fixed.

This columnist should be fired, if this was some black kids doing this, the penalties would've been different, besides why the hell does Ray Allen need to fix his locks, that's his house, if a pit bull had eaten them alive you would've heard Ray was wrong for having pit bulls. Poorly written article, a man's wife and kids are home when the house is broken into and you are worrying about him leaving miami?

I hope he does press charges. The majority of kids that are raised in miami are such shit (just like their parents), and these just sound like a bunch of rich spoiled assholes. They should get the book thrown at them.

Oh and btw your remark about the "majority of kids that are raised in Miami (not capitalized) are such shit (just like their parents)" is laughable. Sounds like you were raised in a barn.

Wow generalize much! I happen to know some of those kids and while what they did is inexcusable they are by no means bad kids! What they did was bad and they will suffer the consequences.  Your bombastic remark is just that...bombastic.
