Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan had made a claim that he had roughly $3,700 in cash stolen from his locker late last month when his team was in town to play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 28. In addition to the money, Shanahan said his passport was stolen as well.
On Thursday the Redskins issued a statement on the matter after the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported the police report claim filed was later withdrawn because Shanahan reportedly had located the missing items in another bag.
“Mike Shanahan did have money and a passport stolen out of his locker room in Pittsburgh,” the statement read. “The Pittsburgh Police insisted on filing a police report because of the missing passport. There is an ongoing investigation. The missing property was not stowed in another bag as reported.”
So someone is running around with the passport of Shanahan? Good luck passing that off. Also, Shanahan supposedly left the items in a leather briefcase that was left unsecured. Don\’t they have team ball boys or junior trainers that can hold onto such items? I am not leaving $3,700 lying around anywhere.
Why do I have a feeling that Shanahan will report in a few days that he forgot the two items were in his other pocket?
