Chicago Bears rookie linebacker Roquan Smith provided an update this morning, on being robbed.
Smith was the victim of theft over the past weekend in Athens, Ga., said in a video posted on his Twitter page that a majority of his personal belongings were recovered and returned to his possession.
“I would personally like to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers as Athens-Clarke County Police Department worked very hard to identify the individual responsible for this,” Smith said on Twitter. “It was definitely huge. I would also like to thank many of you that spread information on various social media outlets.
“Due to the prompt attention by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department, I was able to recover most of my items as well as the individual being identified. Just like to thank you guys so much.”
Roquan reported the theft over the weekend, and numerous items, including a team-issued iPad, were taken from his 2018 BMW X5. The Bears on Tuesday told NFL.com that the iPad was wiped clean remotely, which resulted in no compromise of team information. Like that would matter. The Bears can’t have much info useful for any other team.
