Burglars hit tennis star Venus Williams‘ Florida home, stealing $400,000 worth of goods while she was at the U.S. Open, police said Thursday.
The burglary happened between Sept. 1 and 5 at Williams’ 10,000-square-foot (1,000-square-meter) home, which is in a well-to-do gated community, Palm Beach Gardens police said in a statement. Police blacked out from their report what was stolen. No arrests have been made.
Palm Beach County property records show Williams and her sister Serena bought the home new in 2000. It is now valued at $2.3 million.
Venus Williams’ agent, Carlos Fleming, did not respond to an email seeking comment. The burglary was first reported by WPEC-TV.
This is the second time in five months Palm Beach Gardens police did not publicly release information about an incident involving Williams until it was reported by a news outlet.
