According to ABC7NY, the Carolina Cobras were robbed during the New York Streets game in New York on Sunday. The game was played at the Westchester County Center.
During the game, according to the authorities, members of the visiting team reported that an individual entered their locker room and stole several items.
One of the things stolen was a ring. Also, the police are reporting the individual stole approx. $3,000 from several lockers.
Following the incident, the game was cancelled. The management for both teams elected that the game should not continue.
“Westchester County police are working with the Streets, the Cobras, and the league by reviewing security footage inside the Westchester County Center,” a spokesperson said to ABC7NY. “The Streets sincerely apologize to the Cobras organization — including their players, coaches, ownership — and the fans of the Streets and the National Area League.”
According to the story, Westchester County Police Chief Hodges said the authorities have a person of interest in the case. However, as of this post, the individual is not a suspect.
No arrests have been made at this time.
Hodges also said that one of the team’s dancers in July had money stolen from their locker room. The authorities are also looking into that incident, as well.
The story also states that the league provides security for the teams during their visit to the Westchester County Center. They are supposed to follow the players to ensure nothing is stolen.
