New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was robbed of $500,000 worth of jewelry while he slept in a Miami Beach hotel this weekend.
That is half of what Rogers signed to play for the Giants this season -- $1.005 million, according to Ralph Vacchiano.
According to the report, Rogers went partying and he told Miami Beach Police that he met a woman and Club Liv and brought her back to the room he was staying at the Fontainebleau Hotel at 7 a.m. and put his jewelry in a safe in the room. When he awoke some 5 ½ hours later, the woman was gone and the jewely was missing from the locked safe.
Hotel security opened the safe and it was empty. Missing, per the report, was diamond earrings valued at $100,000, two watches worth $160,000, a gold necklace worth $50,000, two gold bracelets worth $60,000 each and a diamond Cuban necklace and pendant worth $70,000.
