Police are investigating after Le'Veon Bell returned to his Hollywood home and found "both of his girlfriends" were gone, along with $520,000 worth of jewelry.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Two girlfriends of Le'Veon Bell vanished with more than a half-million dollars' worth of jewelry from the NFL running back's South Florida home, police said.

According to a Hollywood police report, Bell returned home from the gym May 25 only to discover that "both of his girlfriends had left" and $520,000 worth of jewelry was missing.

Bell said items in his closet were in disarray and all his jewelry was missing, including two gold chains with diamonds, a "Black Panther" pendant with black and white diamonds and a Rolex watch.

Police are investigating.

Bell practiced with the New York Jets on Tuesday for the first time since signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal, including $35 million guaranteed, in March.

The three-time Pro Bowl player spent his first six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He sat out the 2018 season in a contract dispute.
