    Bosh and his wife had left their two children and a teenager at home with two babysitters at 7:30 p.m. and they headed out to celebrate his birthday at Briza on the Bay restuarant in Miami, according to the police report. The Moroccan themed party included belly dancers and fire breathers. And a camel named Henri greeted guests. The festivities started at 9 p.m.

    When the Boshes got home, they realized their closet had been ransacked, police said. No one who was home heard anything, and apparently the thieves handpicked the items they were stealing, police said.

    Bosh's Championship ring was spared, but they took what they wanted from jewelry box, including watches and rings, police said.

    "We are leaning on the side of this being an inside job," said Miami Beach police spokesman Bobby Hernandez.

    Hernandez said police are checking to see if there had been any contractors at the home recently. The housekeepers were also being interviewed, he said.

    He added that authorities are checking to see if there is any surveillance video from inside the home.

    Bosh joined the Heat in the summer of 2010 through a sign-and-trade deal with the Toronto Raptors, who drafted him in 2003. In his third season with the Heat, Bosh is third on the team in scoring and second in rebounding, averaging 16.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game on 53.4 percent shooting. He also leads the Heat with 1.4 blocks per game.

    Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, have a son, Jackson. Bosh also has a daughter, Trinity, from a prior relationship.
