https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/Half-million-in-loot-stolen-from-A-Rod-s-car-in-14299172.phpA thief smashed into baseball legend Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez’s rental car Sunday night in San Francisco, making off with an estimated half-million dollars worth of jewelry and electronics, sources familiar with the investigation told The Chronicle.
Rodriguez was in town broadcasting the Giants and Philadelphia Phillies game for ESPN and he left his car on the 400 block of Brannan Street, about three blocks from Oracle Park, sources said.
Sometime between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., someone broke into a car in that location and stole a camera, a laptop, miscellaneous jewelry and a bag, said Officer Adam Lobsinger, a San Francisco police spokesman. Lobsinger said the burglary involved a private citizen and it’s against department policy to release victim information.
But numerous sources told The Chronicle the victim was Rodriguez and the thieves pilfered roughly $500,000 worth of goods. The department has made the report confidential, meaning it cannot be accessed by members of the force who are not involved in the investigation.
Who the fuck is stupid enough to leave $500,000 worth of stuff in an car?
