New York Giants players had to be feeling good after going to San Francisco and completely dominating the 49ers 26-3. But those good feeling dissipated for some Giants players when they arrived back home to find that they’re cars had been burglarized, and in one player’s instance, even stolen.
Several vehicles belonging to Giants football players were burglarized and one was stolen from a parking lot at the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford, N.J., while the team was in San Francisco over the weekend, NBC 4 New York has learned.
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.
Neither police nor team officials would confirm the names of the players whose cars were reportedly broken into, but Polite said the majority of the burglarized cars belonged to players.
The car doors were unlocked, Polite said.
The stolen vehicle was a 1996 Chevy Caprice. Souped-up versions of the vehicle are popular with sports stars, Polite said.
The thief or thieves entered the lot by breaking the lock on the gate, according to Polite.
