Burglars stole what was initially believed to be more than $165,000 worth of memorabilia from the home of Nebraska coach Scott Frost over the weekend, per a report from Riley Johnson of the Lincoln Journal Star.
Lincoln Police Captain Jeri Roeder said the burglars entered through an unlocked side door of a garage at the home located near 27th Street and Pine Lake Road. The burglary took place sometime between Friday at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m.
While Frost is still taking inventory of missing items, the initial report was that two Nebraska championship rings, 10 Oregon championship rings, two Central Florida championship rings, five pairs of Air Jordan shoes and a Nintendo Wii game system had been stolen.
Frost later clarified what was missing in a statement through the university.
“The incident that occurred at our home is obviously very disappointing and discouraging," Frost said. "All of our belongings were gone through and it will take some time to determine exactly what is missing and the value of those items.
“I would like to clarify that some items initially reported as missing have been found, including some of the rings listed on the police report. Also, the value of what we believe to actually be missing is lower than what has been publicly reported.”
Frost's home is currently under renovation. The items stolen were stored in boxes in the garage. There are currently no suspects in the crime.
Lincoln Police have asked the community to keep an eye out for anyone trying to sell the missing items. If you see anything suspicious, you can contact police at 402-441-6000 or Crimestoppers at 402-475-3600.
