A-Rod needs to be more careful where he parks his rental cars.
A-Rod was doing his thing Sunday Night, working the ESPN broadcast for Sunday Night Baseball when car jackers make off with a large amount of goods in his rental car, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
A 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.
Teams of burglary investigators were collecting evidence from the vehicle overnight and the department has made the case a high priority, sources said.
Not surprised the police is making his case a high priority, given A-Rod’s celebrity status. I’m surprised A-Rod left that much electronics and jewelry in his rental car to begin with.
