Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost’s soon-to-be home near 27th and Pine Lake in Lincoln was burglarized over the weekend, according to police.
Lincoln Police Captain Jeri Roeder says entry was gained through an unlocked door sometime between Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon.
Since the house was being renovated, no one was living in the home when thieves stole items stored in the garage.
The reported stolen items initially included 14 championship rings from Nebraska, the University of Central Florida and Oregon, but those rings were found and were actually never stolen.
A gaming console was also reported stolen, but that too has been located.
An updated list of the stolen items include five pairs of Oregon Duck Air Jordan shoes, four Oregon football helmets and four autographed photos.
Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the suspects and the stolen items. Capt. Roeder thinks thieves may try to sell the items online.
The five pairs of Oregon Air Jordans were briefly seen for sale on Craigslist in Lincoln. The ad featured pictures of the shoes being sold for $200 for all five pairs. The ad was later removed.
Frost said in a written statement Monday afternoon that the incident is “obviously very disappointing and discouraging.”
Frost said all of their belongings were gone through and it will take some time to determine exactly what is missing.
Police are asking the public for help in their investigation.
Anyone with information is requested to call 402-441-6000 or Crimestoppers at 402-475-3600.
