The Cleveland Police Department turned over two different documents to the NFL regarding New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers. The documents contained details about the theft of his handgun at the end of January and the death of the woman who stole it in February.
The NFL reportedly wanted proof that Peppers is not a suspect in the death of the woman who broke into his vehicle and stole his property, including his handgun.
Via News 5 Cleveland:
The first report is from Jan. 29 and is regarding an incident involving a stolen gun belonging to Peppers.
The report states that someone went into a parking garage on East 12thStreet, broke into Peppers’ 2014 Range Rover and took a bag with his jersey number on it, sunglasses and an iPad. The report also states that a Glock semi-automatic handgun was taken from the center console.
According to the report, a 57-year-old woman named Marsha Carroll was listed as a possible suspect. Court records show Carroll had a long history of arrests, but the report doesn’t indicate she was ever arrested in connection with the stolen property.
The second report the NFL requested was regarding Carroll’s homicide.
On Feb. 6, Carroll was found beaten, taken to a nearby hospital and later died. A 26-year-old man named Deointa Campbell was arrested and charged with murder and felonious assault for Carroll’s death.
The Police Department took to Twitter to call out the headline of the article and confirm that Peppers is not a suspect in either of the incidents.
Just to be clear, Mr. Peppers is not a suspect in any incidents with @CLEpolice. This is a little misleading 👇🏼 https://t.co/TJ3kTnsmmX

The NFL appears to be doing a thorough investigation on a crime that one of their players was the victim of. That’s just perfect. Maybe the NFL has the protocol for dealing with one of their players being accused of a crime, mixed up with the protocol for when their players are the victims of a crime. That certainly would explain a lot.
