The Giants dominated the 49ers with a 26-3 win on Sunday. However, when they got back to New Jersey, they found that five cars belonging to players had been burglarized at the Timex Performance Center parking lot in East Rutherford — the team’s training facility near MetLife Stadium.
In addition, a souped up 1996 Chevrolet Caprice reportedly belonging to defensive tackle Marvin Austin was stolen.
New Jersey State Police told WCBS 880 that the cars were targeted around 4 a.m. Sunday morning in an area controlled by private security.
A lock was broken on the iron gate.
Offensive lineman James Brewer tweeted about the thefts.
“Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud..geez get your life right in 2012,” he said.
He later tweeted, “My cars been broken into twice, in this state. If you took what I said personally then that’s a whole different set of issues. Not slamming the state, slamming what happened to me and fellow teammates in THIS state.”
