It’s been a rough weekend for Chicago Bears rookie linebacker Roquan Smith. He had his college jersey and helmet stolen from his property in Athens, Georgia when someone broke into his car. As if that weren’t bad enough, among other things, his Bears’ iPad loaded with the playbook was nabbed as well.
Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times, per Athens-Clarke County (Ga.) public information officer Epifanio Rodriguez, noted that Smith contacted police late Saturday night to report that items from his 2018 BMW X5 had been stolen.
“Among the items stolen were the Bears’ iPad; four pairs of Bose headphones; Bluetooth speakers; a Kyboe watch; a Michael Kors watch; Nike shoes; Smith’s Georgia helmet; Smith’s Georgia jersey worn during the regular season; Smith’s Georgia jersey worn in the Rose Bowl; and Smith’s Georgia jersey worn in the national tittle game.”
That’s a lot of valuable stuff.
Thankfully, police were able to lift fingerprints that could potentially be used to find the culprit. The case remains open as the police continue to investigate the matter.
