Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice learnt that the hard way as a burglar showed his absolute disregard for the three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro and recently ransacked his home.
 
Baltimore County police say that Rice's Maryland home was burglarized over the weekend.  The thieves made away with handguns and a wad of cash from the residence.
 
Police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathleen Batton stated on Monday that the burglary occurred between 8:30 p.m. Friday and 12:50 a.m. Saturday at Rice’s home in Reisterstown. The burglary was reported to the police at around 1:20 a.m. Saturday. Rice was not at home at the time as he was out of town for the weekend. But a friend who was staying at his home while he was gone reported the burglary to the police, said Cpl. Batton.
 
"First of all, my family is OK, which is most important," Rice addressed the burglary in a statement released by the team on Monday. "I'll be dealing with this through the proper legal channels."
 
Surveillance video of Rice’s home shows the burglary happening at the time, and will certainly provide the police with some clues.
 
Batton said that the burglar broke into the house through a rear window and ransacked portions of Rice’s home overnight. The police reported two handguns and $2,000 cash were stolen from Rice’s home during the incident.
 
At this point, no arrests have been made following the incident as an investigation into the burglary is still ongoing.
 
Rice is a six-year veteran with the Baltimore Ravens who spent his entire career with the team after being drafted in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft. The 26-year-old Rice has run for 5,520 yards and 33 touchdowns as well as catching 311 passes for 2,713 yards during his NFL career.
