Roquan Smith thanks police for helping recover 'most' of stolen items

Roquan Smith has Bears iPad, Georgia jerseys stolen from car

Roquan Smith should be in the process of moving from Georgia to the Windy City, so maybe that's the explanation for having so many valuables in one's auto.

Bears rookie linebacker Roquan Smith had several items stolen from his vehicle last weekend, but police in Athens, Georgia have been able to recover majority.

Among the items stolen were a Bears team-issued iPad, 2017 game-worn jerseys, including the ones he wore in the Rose Bowl and National Title game, along with his helmet from his final year with the Bulldogs.

Police said there was no sign of forced entry into the vehicle, parked at an apartment complex.

Cavs Reportedly Won't Punish Rodney Hood for Refusing to Enter Game 4
With Cleveland leading 110-80 and on its way to sweeping the series, the Cavs called a timeout to replace superstar LeBron James . Hood was the only player not to play in Game 4, though the Cavs do not view what he did as an act of defiance, a source said.

Athens police found a fingerprint on Smith's auto and were able to trace it to a Summerville teenager who attends the University of Georgia.

"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 in the video message. I would also like to thank many of you that spread the information on various social-media platforms.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Smith's iPad was not among the recovered items.

Athens-Clarke County Police public information officer Epifanio Rodriguez tells the Chicago Tribune a fingerprint found in the linebacker's vehicle identified the suspect and detectives recovered some of the property, but not the iPad. "I'd just like to thank you guys so much". Rodriguez says authorities expect to obtain arrest warrants soon and charges will be filed in the case. The teen reportedly attends the University of Georgia.
