Five football helmets, Air Jordan shoes and photographs have been reported stolen from the Lincoln home of Nebraska coach Scott Frost.
Championship rings were also among the $165,000 in sports memorabilia initially reported stolen. But late Monday afternoon, Frost called police to report that he had found the rings, an autographed helmet and a Wii in his garage.
“We’re still investigating it as a burglary ,” said Capt. Todd Kocian of the Lincoln Police Department.
In a statement Monday, Frost described the incident as “very disappointing and discouraging. All of our belongings were gone through, and it will take some time to determine exactly what is missing and the value of those items.”
Five pairs of Oregon Ducks Air Jordan shoes temporarily appeared for sale out of Lincoln on Craigslist. Although such ads can sometimes be false, it featured pictures of the shoes being sold for $200 for all five pairs. The ad was later removed.
Frost’s home is being renovated, and it appears that entry to the unoccupied home was gained through an unlocked door, police said. The theft occurred between Friday afternoon and Sunday.
