In a plot that seems like it could have been part of Goodfellas, apparently while the Giants were dominating the 49ers in San Francisco Sunday, their cars, which they had left in a Meadowlands parking lot over the weekend, were broken into. One car was also stolen. From NBCNewYork.com:
Several vehicles belonging to Giants football players were burglarized and one was stolen from a parking lot at the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford, N.J., while the team was in San Francisco over the weekend, NBC 4 New York has learned. The burglaries happened between 4 a.m. and 4:20 a.m. Sunday in a parking area controlled by a private security firm contracted by the Giants, according to state police spokesman Sgt. Brian Polite. When they’re out of town during away games, Giants team members typically leave their parked cars in the area, secured by an iron gate and surveilled by security cameras. One player, offensive tackle James Brewer, tweeted Sunday night, “Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud.” Neither police nor the Giants team would confirm the names of the players who reportedly had their cars broken into, but Polite said the majority of the burglarized cars belonged to players. The car doors were unlocked, Polite said. The stolen vehicle was a 1996 Chevy Caprice. Souped-up versions of the vehicle are popular with sports stars and “very common” in cities like Miami, Polite said.
