CBS Miami: Giants DT Shaun Rogers Has Nearly $500K In Jewelry Stolen
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was allegedly burglarized in the wee hours of Monday morning during a stay at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, according to CBS Miami.
The three-time Pro Bowler told police that he left his room at around 1 a.m. to go to Club Liv, the website reported. While at the club, Miami Beach Police said that Rogers and his party met a woman who ended up coming back to the football player’s hotel room.
The 13-year veteran told police that he put valuables in his room safe at approximately 7 a.m., CBS Miami reported. When he awoke more than five hours later, the 34-year-old said that the woman who came to the hotel room from the club was gone.
Rogers told police officers that he attempted to open the safe, but failed to do so. Security from the Fontainebleau managed to open up the safe, only to find Rogers’ valuables gone, according to CBS Miami.
The website reported that Rogers claims the following items were stolen: “diamond earrings worth $100,000, two wristwatches worth a combined $160,000, a gold necklace with gold pendant worth $50,000, gold bracelets worth $60,000 and a diamond Cuban necklace with a gold pendant worth $70,000.”
The University of Texas product spent the bulk of his career with the Lions. He also played for the Browns and Saints before signing with Big Blue on April 26, 2012.
He’s yet to play a snap with the Giants, however, having missed the entire 2012 season. He was placed on injured reserve on August 31 due to a blood clot in his left calf. He was re-signed by general manager Jerry Reese last month.
Since entering the league in 2001, the 6-f00t-4, 350-pounder has amassed 504 tackles, 37.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception.
