Teens break into Ray Allen’s Miami home, his wife chases them off

Don’t mess with Ray Allen’s wife.

Ray Allen is still deciding if he’s going to play for the Cavaliers next season or walk away from the game after a Hall of Fame career, but he loves Coral Gables where he lives in Miami and will continue to live there. His family is still there.

Some curious teens in Miami apparently don’t read PBT and didn’t know all that, so they broke into his house, reports

The group of seven teen had been attending a party next door when they decided to go to the Coral Gables home around 2:30 a.m., Coral Gables Police spokeswoman Kelly Denham said.

The teens, who believed Allen and his family weren’t home and said they thought it would be “cool” to go in the house, entered through an unlocked back door, Denham said. Allen’s wife and kids were sleeping upstairs but were awoken by the commotion, Denham said.

“She heard people walking up the stairs and that’s when she yelled out to them, “what are you doing in my house?” Denham said. “As soon as they heard that, they fled the house.”

The teens then told some of their parents, who drove them straight to the police station. The teens admitted entering the home — they saw boxes and thought he and his family was gone and moving to Cleveland, according to the report.

The teens have yet to be charged, this would be a misdemeanor because nothing was taken and there was apparently no “intent” to steal.

I get it in this sense — I bet Ray Allen has a cool house. Probably some sweet memorabilia. But in a state with “stand your ground” laws that appear to be broadly interpreted, the youth should be happy this turned out the way it did.

    put her down for all defense 1st team

      She fouled out before the 1st quarter was over….keeping a back door unlocked was TERRIBLE defense, & was utterly foolish! How could anyone w/ even a little bit of common sense do such a stupid thing, especially these days?

      • money2long - Aug 15, 2014 at 1:14 PM

        who’s to say she left it unlocked? could’ve been one of the kids. in basketball, a good defensive teammate covers for a teammate’s error i.e. tyson chandler when perimeter players get beat. all she did was cover for the liability.

      • libertyman62 - Aug 15, 2014 at 2:14 PM

        Money, I’m just going by what I read in the article. Whether she was the one who left the door unlocked instead of one of her kids doesn’t matter.

        If the door was locked, I think it’s safe to say that Mrs. Allen would have been woken up by the noise the break-in would have created, provided that she wasn’t living in a 4-story house & the BR she was sleeping in wasn’t on the 4th floor.

        u seemed to quickly want to point the finger solely at her, which is weird. keep in mind it’s a family home and the information provided to you in the story that you ARE sure of was who deterred the intruders. so you might want to try to give her some semblance of credit.

      • metalhead65 - Aug 15, 2014 at 6:41 PM

        yeah blame the victim, so sick of hearing that garbage! because the door was unlocked that makes it OK for these clowns just to walk in? all that did was save them the trouble of breaking a window or busting in the door. in my city there has been a wave of people stealing stuff from cars and the cops say it’s be cause we dare leave the car unlocked while we go pay for gas, I am not taking the blame because some scumbag thinks because my door is unlocked that gives him the right to take whatever he feels while I take the 2 min. to pay and it is not her fault for not checking the door.

    Sean T was murdered when some teens thought he was away.

    Lucky they didn’t get shot. Stupid a$$ kids.

  4. stadix093 - Aug 15, 2014 at 11:08 AM

    Wtf is wrong with people man?

  5. metalhead65 - Aug 15, 2014 at 11:09 AM

    how is it cool to go into somebody’s house uninvited whether you thought they were gone or not? they are lucky they were not shot and it would have been just fine if they were. how are you suppose to know what their intentions are when somebody breaks into your house? doesn’t matter if the door was unlocked it was not their house and they had no business being there. at least some of their parents did the right thing and turned them into the police themselves.

      How is it cool to go into somebody’s house uninvited?

      Take it from a rich guy with celebrity neighbors – it’s pretty cool!

      • libertyman62 - Aug 15, 2014 at 12:07 PM

        It AIN’T cool to go into another person’s house uninvited, regardless of whether they are rich or not. It is an invitation to getting shot, & deservedly so.

    • libertyman62 - Aug 15, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      A big thumbs-up to some of the parents! They definitely did the right thing.

  6. chrisanderson2013 - Aug 15, 2014 at 11:10 AM

    “They saw boxes and thought he and his family was gone and moving to Cleveland” Sounds like someone has already made the decision to move. Or maybe they just never unpacked…….Yea right.

    Typical Miami Heat fans.

    • ProBasketballPundit - Aug 15, 2014 at 11:52 AM

      What, because they left early when things got bad?

    • libertyman62 - Aug 15, 2014 at 12:11 PM

      It sounds more like they were typical Obama “sons”.

    So many things here.

    Perhaps the children forgot and left the door open.

    Perhaps they took for granted they were in an “upscale” neighborhood and didn’t feel the need to lock the door.

    Perhaps they’ve never locked that door.

    Serious burglars like to make sure a place is vacant before they go in. They really want to avoid confrontation.

    Those were obviously some “entitled” rich kids who think everything is theirs for the taking. Thus thinking it’s “cool” to
    just invade someone else’s property.

    It doesn’t bode well for the future of this nation if that generation is growing up with that kind of thinking.
    We should all be worried.,

      America has been Transformed, what else can you say???

  11. aldavis4president - Aug 15, 2014 at 12:28 PM

    Teach those idiots a lesson and put em in jail. How can breaking into someone’s home be remotely understandable?? I’ve had my home broken into once and the peace at home is never the same after.

  12. Mr. Wright 212 - Aug 15, 2014 at 1:42 PM

    First thing that came to mind was Sean Taylor. Thank God it didn’t go beyond this.

  13. canadatude - Aug 15, 2014 at 1:49 PM

    Did LeBron send the kids to encourage a move to Cleveland? Conspiracy theory. LOL

  14. nokoolaidcowboy - Aug 15, 2014 at 2:01 PM

    You know very well these fools weren’t going to walk around and look at some cool stuff!

    • agent7x6 - Aug 15, 2014 at 4:14 PM

      Agreed. If they thought he had moved, why would there be cool stuff in the house?

  15. azarkhan - Aug 15, 2014 at 2:11 PM

    “The teens then told some of their parents, who drove them straight to the police station.”

    Best parents ever.

    • libertyman62 - Aug 15, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      They should have whipped them w/ a belt like my father did me…& THEN went to the police station!

  16. antistratfordian - Aug 15, 2014 at 4:02 PM

    Why do people still keep their doors unlocked?

  17. bronx77 - Aug 15, 2014 at 8:37 PM

    I hate when people say “this generation” of kids. First of all as a member of this generation I know damn well not to break into someone’s house because of what my parents taught me. Take a look in the mirror before blaming the younger generation. I’m not saying your kids are bad, but parents form the person that the child becomes so if they feel entitled it’s most likely the “older generations” fault for giving them that feeling. Just saying.

    • mackcarrington - Aug 15, 2014 at 9:15 PM

      It’s not surprising someone from “that generation” finds a way to blame someone else for their faults. This is not unexpected. Carry on.

  18. bronx77 - Aug 15, 2014 at 10:07 PM

    So your saying that parents have no impact on their children?? Carry on….

    • mackcarrington - Aug 15, 2014 at 11:08 PM

      So I’m saying take responsibility for your own actions.
      Why is that so hard to understand?
      Are you going to go through your entire life blaming your parents for every misstep you make?
      If that’s the way you think I can see why we have a problem.
