The New York Giants returned to New Jersey following an impressive win over the San Francisco 49ers. Some players were welcomed back to the surprise that their cars had been burglarized. One player even had his car – a ’96 Chevy Caprice – stolen. The cars were left unlocked in a secured lot at the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford. From NBC New York:
The cars were targeted between 4 a.m. and 4:20 a.m. Sunday in a parking area controlled by a private security firm contracted by the Giants, according to state police spokesman Sgt. Brian Polite.
When they’re out of town during away games, Giants team members typically leave their parked cars in the area, secured by an iron gate and monitored by security cameras.
It is incredibly stupid to leave your doors unlocked. I recently lost a GPS that way. I’m guessing NFL players lost much more expensive possessions, but I’m sure they feel my pain. As lineman James Brewer notes, it is hard to believe that a Giants fan would do this. So it was probably a Jets fan. Or 49ers fans. They are capable of anything.
