A Texas home owned by NBA star Chris Bosh was the target of a police drug trafficking raid and his mother was named as a suspect in the case.

Bosh’s mother is believed to have been living in the home. The DeSoto Police Department tells DailyMail.com officials seized ‘a large amount of drug paraphernalia that was consistent with narcotics trafficking’ from the home.

Frieda Bosh, his mother, is listed as a suspect in the report, however no arrests have been made yet, but that could be changing soon.

In a wild week for Bosh, he listed his Miami Beach mansion for $18million citing personal reasons 

The police official said the raid happened at 6:30am Friday morning, and the warrant indicated cops believed crack cocaine and heroin were being trafficked through the home.

The police say that they do not believe Bosh himself has any connection to the alleged drug trafficking ring, other than being the home’s owner.

Just days earlier the Wall Street Journal reported that Bosh was listing his Miami Beach home for $18million, citing ‘personal reasons.’

He bought the mansion back in 2010 for $12.333million after signing with the Miami Heat.

The property is described as ‘Bright and spacious, state-of-the-art, modern wide bay estate situated in Miami Beach, on privileged and exclusive North Bay Road.’

The ‘architectural masterpiece is governed by three main elements: Geometry, Water and Light.’

Bosh's mansion boasts a pool and a total of seven bedrooms on the property- which includes a guest house

The home is mainly white- reflecting the sunny Miami weather. Meanwhile Bosh has hinted at a desire to return to the NBA 

‘Outstanding features include: cascading water entrance, expansive wall space for art, exquisite finishes throughout, spectacular gourmet kitchen, gym, and elevator, floor to ceiling impact windows and doors, and separate guest quarters.’

The mansion itself boasts 12,368 square feet of interior living space, with seven bedrooms—including one in the guesthouse—and eight bathrooms.

It was announced earlier this year that Bosh would cease playing in the NBA after suffering a series of blood clots, however he has hinted at a desire to return to the game in recent interviews.

It was reported in July that Bosh still gets his $25.3 million salary from the Heat for this season.
