L.A. County sheriff's deputies caught four people in the act as they were burglarizing the home of boxing star Manny Pacquiao, officials said.

According to a Sheriff's Department statement, deputies were in Pacquiao's neighborhood and saw the burglary go down. It occurred at 1:30 p.m. in the 500 block of Plymouth Boulevard in Hancock Park. No one was home at the time.

Los Angeles Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker told The TImes the investigation is ongoing.

"Like any other burglaries, we are investigating to see if these burglars are involved in other crimes," Parker said.

The area is typically patrolled by the Los Angeles Police Department, but the sheriff's deputies were there following up on a crime that had occurred in the Sheriff Department's area. Parker did not elaborate on the nature of the previous crime.
