LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) - Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. returned from his huge 40th birthday bash in Los Angeles to find his Las Vegas home ransacked.

Metro police sources said, over the weekend a burglar broke into the back of the home by forcing a door open. Mayweather's mansion is located in a highly secured gated community. Outside, the retired fighter's gym fans had plenty to say about the burglary.

Mayweather fan Jason Hudson said, "that's pretty crazy. He parties a lot. Shows a lot of money and stuff. It's just crazy that someone of that caliber would have something like that happen."

Adam Perlis added, "there's a number of people in line that want to get to his stuff, because he's a professional athlete. They think he has money. His stuff is top of the line. The only thing wrong with it -- it's his."

Metro sources tell news KSNV about $150,000 of Mayweather's belongings were taken. We are told purses and watches are missing.

Hudson said, "it makes you wonder if someone knew he was going to be out of it was an inside job."

Police believe the incident occurred between Friday, Feb. 24 and Monday, Feb. 27. Mayweather was celebrating his birthday over the weekend in downtown Los Angeles with Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber. Police have no suspect description.

"People need to stay away from other people's things,” Perils said. “It's not right how much money they have. It's his -- hopefully they get caught. "
