While New York Giants Played 49ers In SF, Thieves Burglarized Players’ Cars In New Jersey
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBS/AP) — Police were trying to find the suspects who broke into vehicles owned by some New York Giants while the team was beating San Francisco 23-3.
The team parks in a lot in East Rutherford and employs a security firm to guard the lot.
Thieves broke a lock on the gate and gained access to the lot sometime after 4 a.m. on Sunday, according to police.
Police said the thieves stole a 1996 Chevy Caprice.
Officials haven’t released the names of the players who were burglarized.
Offensive tackle James Brewer tweeted: “Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud.”
