Philadelphia police are investigating a home burglary in which Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson was robbed of a reported $325,000 in cash and jewelry as well as a handgun.

The former Long Beach Poly High and California standout was not at home in Philadelphia when the robbery took place last week sometime between Monday and Friday. Jackson's mother reported the burglary Saturday morning after she arrived at the home Friday night and eventually discovered her son's bedroom had been ransacked.

The burglars apparently disabled the home security system and robbed Jackson of about $200,000 in cash, $125,000 in jewelry and a handgun, authorities said.

Jackson referred to the burglary in a Twitter post.
