The New York Giants have their cars burglarized

October 17, 2012 12:00 AM

While members of football's New York Giants were putting on a dominant performance in San Francisco, their personal cars were broken into while in the player parking lot of MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Several players had their vehicles broken into and stolen from, with the perpetrator making off with personal items as well as one car - a 1996 Chevy Caprice. While it may not sound like much, USA Today reports that the model had undergone plenty of auto repair and was a "souped up" version often popular with professional athletes.

Many of the Giants were, naturally, displeased with the turn of events. Offensive tackle James Brewer tweeted his disdain to the masses after receiving the news that he was robbed.

"Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud," the athlete wrote, according to USA Today. "Geez get your life right in 2012."

According to CBS Sports, the private lot is monitored by an outside security firm. It is enclosed with an iron gate and is equipped with surveillance cameras. However, many of the cars were left unlocked, making it easy for a burglar to go through the players' personal belongings once they slipped into the lot.
