NBA legend Michael Jordan’s seven-acre Highland Park, Illinois home was broken into resulting in the on-site arrest of an 18-year-old man.
The Highland Park Police Department responded to calls of a burglary occurring at 2700 Point Drive, which is the basketball star’s estate.
When they arrived at the scene of the crime, the department took Raiden K. Hagedorn, 18, of Mundelein, into custody in connection with the incident. Since then he has been charged with three misdemeanor accounts for criminal trespass to an occupied residence and two counts of criminal damage to property.
Hagedorn was later released on bail and his expected appearance for his court case is on April 20th. Additionally, Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart confirmed with Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a juvenile was also arrested alongside Hagedorn.
However, due to “strict rules regarding juvenile proceedings,” he could not provide further information about the culprit. It is unclear if the juvenile faced the same charges as the adult.
This was also not the first time Hagedorn had run-ins with the law. Days prior to the Jordan estate burglary, the 18-year-old was charged with possession of cannabis, possession of drug paraphernalia, and disregarding a stop sign following a traffic stop by police.
A look into Michael Jordan’s beautiful residence, which is listed on the market for $14.8 million
The home, which is a custom-designed property characterized by “every conceivable luxury amenity,” is a property Jordan has been trying to sell for years. The basketball legend has reportedly not lived at the property in over a decade, ever since he put it on the market in 2012.
According to the property listing, the property includes a regulation-sized basketball gymnasium, an infinity pool, a putting green, a tennis court, and a cigar room, of which “each [have] Jordan’s signature touch.”
“It’s such a beautiful house,” realtor Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner told Sun-Times. “Every weekend people from all over the world came to see Michael’s house.”
The property was initially listed for $29 million but has since dropped to $14.8 million on account of no one making an offer. Despite this, ever since the home was featured in a 2020 documentary, the realtor reported more potential buyers expressing interest in the home.
“Suddenly there does appear to be a bit of interest in it,” she said of Jordan’s Chicago-based estate.
