After picking up a woman at a Miami hot spot and taking her to his hotel room, Shaun Rogers of the New York Giants was allegedly robbed of $500,000 in jewelry, the New York Post reports.
Rogers told the cops that he was out partying with a man and woman at Club LIV inside of Hotel Fountainebleau. Its night club draws the likes of Jay-Z and LeBron James. He met up with a woman at the club and he and the other unnamed man and woman went back to his room around 7 a.m. Rogers said that he put his jewelry in the room’s safe and went to sleep as the others kept partying.
When he woke up around 12:30 p.m., his date disappeared and the safe he had put his expensive jewels into would not open.
“Hotel security was called, and after some difficulty was able to open the safe. The victim realized most of his valuables were missing,” a Miami police report states.
Here is more on this story:
Rogers, who is not married, didn’t know his date’s name, but was able to provide cops with a phone number of a woman who was with her in the club earlier.
“The suspect has not been ID’d. Unknown exactly who she is at this point and time,” Miami Detective Vivian Hernandez of the Miami Police Department wrote in an e-mail to The Post.
It wasn’t Roger’s first brush with trouble.
In June 2007, he was accused of sexually assaulting a stripper, though charges were never filed because of a lack of evidence.
On April Fools Day 2010, Rogers was busted at Cleveland Hopkins Airport for having a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage.
Rogers played 11 years in the NFL before coming to the Giants.
The Giants signed Rogers to a one-year $1 million contract last month. His stolen jewelry is worth half of that.
