MLB Star’s House Gets Robbed For The 4th Time. Might Be Time To Get Better Security

David Hookstead | Reporter

Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig’s house was robbed Tuesday night for the fourth time.

TMZ reported the following:

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Puig’s San Fernando Valley home Tuesday night around 8 PM after one of the Dodger’s assistants got a security alert on his phone, which showed 3 men leaving Puig’s property.

Yasiel has a security camera set up that captures motion, and it automatically sends the video to a cell phone programmed to receive it. When Yasiel’s associate saw the footage, he immediately called police … but the bad guys had already fled. 

We’re told the men broke in through the back door … smashing it open. It’s unclear at this point if anything was taken.

Any time your house gets robbed, it’s bad news. But this is now the fourth time it’s happened to Puig. If your house gets robbed four times, eventually that’s just on your awful security. The Cuban-born star has made $41 million in his career, and there is a lot more on its way.

As somebody who is a bit of a security expert myself, I think it might be time to get a hell of a lot better security in place. It’s not like he couldn’t afford to have a guy stationed near his house at all times. That’s gonna run you less than $500,000, which I think a man making this kind of money can stomach.

What a guy of Puig’s stature can’t stomach is letting criminals think you can just knock over his house whenever you want. That can’t be allowed to fly.

If I were in this situation, you’d best believe there’d be some sharpshooters on standby at all times to take out any potential burglars. As they say, there’s nothing in my house worth getting killed for trying to steal it. Sometimes you just have to raise the stakes.

At the very least, he needs to find some people to watch his house when he’s not around or at a game, like this time. It’s pretty simple.
