Police admit mistake in Jackson burglary case
Share This Post

According to information provided to NBC10, the initial amount of cash reportedly stolen from DeSean Jackson's house was incorrect.

Philadelphia Police at first estimated $200,000 in cash was stolen from Jackson's home after a preliminary interview with his mother, Gayle, who said her son typically has that much in the safe that was robbed. But when police talked with Jackson, he said only $20,000 along with a handgun was in a safe at the time of the break-in. A gold and diamond watch worth $110,000 was also taken.

"No one misled us and no one lied to us about what was taken," Lt. John Stanford said. "This was a genuine mistake on our part.

"His mother was giving police what she thought was in the home. Once they interviewed Jackson, he knows what's in his house, and he said, 'No that's wrong.' He told them what was missing."

The burglary was first reported on Jan. 11.
