Andrew Wiggins’ Los Angeles home was burglarized earlier this month.The Timberwolves forward has been spending the summer on the West Coast working out when, according to a TMZ report, his shoes, luggage and rental car were stolen. Wiggins’ belongings are still missing. The TMZ report noted:”Law enforcement sources tell us the 24-year-old — who’s been in L.A. training for the NBA this summer — had his place broken into earlier this month.”But, we’re told cops described the scene as ‘amateur hour’ … because the burglars left jewelry and other valuables in the heist, and only took about $1,000 worth of the stuff instead.”We’re told the thieves stole a pair of Wiggins’ casual Nikes and his luggage — and also made off with his rental SUV Escalade. But, we’re told authorities were able to locate the vehicle a short time later.”The Los Angeles Police Department is still investigating the incident and no arrests have been made, TMZ added.
