Cops reportedly do not know what was stolen and have not yet identified any suspects.
The boxer was in Las Vegas at the time where he had earlier retained his WBA world welterweight title with a unanimous points victory over American Adrien Broner.
After the fight he told Floyd Mayweather he is open to a rematch if the American is prepared to come out of retirement to challenge him.
Five-weight world champion Mayweather, who defeated Pacquiao in 2015, was among the crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Asked repeatedly about a rematch at his post-fight press conference, he said: ‘My message is I’m still active.
‘If he goes back to the ring and wants to challenge me, I’m a champion. Get back to the ring and we will fight again if he wants.

‘I’m just waiting to see who will challenge me, who will challenge [for] my belt.’

The L-shaped house reportedly has seven bedrooms, a pool with a spa and a large koi pond.
The 11-time world champion paid more than $18 million for the luxury home in his native Philippines in 2011.
Pacquiao is an elected official in the Philippines and has been rumoured as a possible future Filipino president.
