Former MLB star shortstop Miguel Tejada had his Florida home burglarized over a period of time while he was in the Dominican Republic.
According to TMZ Sports, Tejada has been out of the country a lot lately as he relocates his family, who live in the Dominican Republic. While he’s been out of the house, a 60-year-old man who was house-sitting in the home next door is alleged to have systematically removed items from the home over a period of three months.
“We’re told officials believe the suspect, Mark Parker, systematically took more than $10,000 in belongings over a period of 3 months.”
While officials indicated the losses were around $10,000, sources close to Tejada believe the number could swell up to around $500,000 as they continue to catalog their losses, per TMZ Sports.
Parker has since been arrested for burglary and grand theft. Not surprisingly, Tejada and his wife are incensed over the entire deal and reportedly want to be “prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
