Gainesville, FL -- Two Gator football players became crime victims Sunday morning when their home was burglarized and one of the player’s had his BCS National Championship ring stolen.
The house where University of Florida players Chris Rainey and Moses Jenkins live was broken into Sunday morning, according to the Gainesville Police Department. The items reported stolen include Rainey’s 2008 National Championship ring, 10 pairs of Jenkins’ shoes, a Gucci duffel bag, a television and a Sony PlayStation.
Lt. David Rowe said Rainey, a running back, and Moses, a fifth year player, left their home in the 3300 block of Southwest 42nd Street around 6 a.m. Sunday. The break-in was reported by a girlfriend who found the back door of the home kicked it at about 11 a.m., Rowe said.
The home had been ransacked, according to investigators. Rowe said the players’ personal possessions - especially the championship ring - may have been targeted by the burglar.
