When will some of these athletes and rappers learn? I swear I hear stories like this far too often. However, $500,000.00 bruh?! Dammmnnn! Shaun Rogers was caught slipping…or was he?
CBS 4 in Miami is reporting that Rogers had about $500,000 in jewelry stolen from the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. Rogers, 34, told police he left his room around 1 a.m. with friends and made his way to the Club Liv. While partying, Rogers and his crew of course met a woman who the group brought back to Rogers’ room, according to Miami Beach Police.Rogers told Miami Beach Police that he put his valuables in the room safe when he returned around 7 a.m., and the group continued to party. At some point, around 7 a.m., Rogers finally fell asleep. According to police, Rogers said at 12:30 pm., he awoke and found the woman that they had brought home from the club gone. Once Rogers realized the woman was gone, of course his antennas went up. Rogers told police he tried unsuccessfully to get into the room’s safe. Hotel security then came to the room and was able to get open the safe and found Rogers’ valuables were missing.
Among the items Rogers said were stolen were: diamond earrings worth $100,000; two wristwatches worth a combined $160,000; a gold necklace with gold pendant worth $50,000; gold bracelets worth $60,000; and a diamond Cuban necklace with a gold pendant worth $70,000.
I just find this story hard to believe! This smells like an insurance scam. It is not like Shaun is a rookie. He is 34 years old! He should know better than to fall asleep with an unattended groupie in his room! Anyways, if this story is true…maybe Shaun should just charge it to the game.
