WOODLAND HILLS—Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods’ Woodland Hills home was burglarized on Thursday, September 27, during the Rams’ game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department arrived on 23100 block of Mariano Street at 7:20 p.m. after receiving a call about a home burglary. Once police arrived at the home, the suspect(s) had already fled the scene stealing some of the NFL star’s belongings. On Friday, September 28, authorities pulled over a suspect who they believe may be connected with the burglary, TMZ reported.
Police believe Woods’ home was targeted via social media posts noting the athlete was not home. The Los Angeles Police Department is still investigating the burglary, but believe the suspects who burglarized Woods home, may be responsible for the latest break-in at the home of Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig. Puig’s home has been broken into several times in the recent year.
During Thursday night’s game at L.A. Memorial Coliseum, Woods had 5 passes for a total of 101 yards and scored a touchdown. The Rams beat the Vikings 38-31 and remain undefeated with a record of 4 wins and 0 losses. They are currently in first place in the NFC West division.
Woods began playing football for his high school in Gardena, California. Following graduation, he continued his football career playing for the USC Trojans. In 2013, Woods entered the NFL drafted and was selected the 41st overall pick by Buffalo Bills. After playing four seasons with the Bills, Woods signed with the Los Angeles Rams in 2017.
