TMZ Sports reports the thieves took $500K worth of valuables, which included electronics and jewelry.

Representatives for the broadcaster contest he had valuables worth that value amount, telling the website "the financial value of the items stolen from Alex Rodriguez’s vehicle while he was having dinner is being grossly exaggerated."

Rodriguez expressed the items were of sentimental value, and that he hopes surveillance footage will help police find the culprit(s).

Police are reportedly investigating the incident in order to find the crooks who busted into the sports star’s rental.
