Philadelphia police say someone broke into and stole more than $250,000 in cash and jewelry from a home belonging to Eagles star wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Investigators said Saturday the burglary happened sometime earlier in the week at Jackson's home in South Philadelphia, not far from the team's practice facility. A silver 9mm handgun is also missing.

Police say the cash and jewelry was taken from a safe. A source who spoke to Fox 29 said one safe was taken and two more were cracked open.

No arrests have been made. A police spokeswoman says the investigation is ongoing.

"The things they do 4 a lil paper !! Keep a smile on my face God Plan 4 me bigger then that !! Know that,” Jackson posted on his Twitter account Sunday morning.

Jackson’s mother said to police that his friends have access to the home when he is there, but the second floor -- where the items were stolen – is always locked, the source told Fox 29.

Jackson was the Eagles' leading receiver this season with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. He signed a five-year, $51 million contract before the 2012 season.
