As a professional athlete, you likely feel pretty safe leaving your car in the players parking lot when you come to practice or even on a game day. The lot is often placed underground or at least in a secure garage, covered by multiple security guards. The chances of something happening to your prized ride is extremely unlikely, though, it’s whats in the car that can become a problem if there just so happens to be a rouge parking-lot attendant.
According to Philly.com, that’s exactly what happened to Philadelphia Eagles guard Tood Herremans who allegedly had over $225,000 dollars stolen from him by a players parking-lot attendant.
A parking lot attendant who watched over cars belonging to the Philadelphia Eagles as they played was accused this morning in stealing more than $225,000 from one of the player’s bank accounts.
Most (if not all) NFL teams rent out rooms in local hotels prior to games, which is where the reported theft took place. The teams use the hotels to house players prior to game day, especially for those who don’t live within quick driving distance to the stadium.
The man, who was a subcontractor and not employed by the Eagles, allegedly transferred $225,034.52 to his own bank account out of Herremans over the course of three years after stealing documents which contained Herremans checking account number from the car.
