While Fenway Park security and police officers aren’t jumping around in celebration, they’re nabbing glove thieves. And that’s exactly what they did in the curious case of some guy trying to steal Mike Napoli’s glove.
23-year-old Thomas Robbins from Concord, MA was was arraigned Monday in Roxbury District Court on charges of attempting to commit a crime and trespassing, the Boston Globe reports:
At around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to Yawkey Way for a report of larceny and found Robbins inside the Sox clubhouse. When asked what he was doing, Robbins began to exit the clubhouse, dropping Napoli’s beloved glove along the way, the statement said.
Robbins was stopped by fast-thinking Fenway security staff in a parking lot reserved for players. He was carrying Red Sox and Major League Baseball press box passes, which lead them to believe Robbins had also been in the press box, the statement said. It was unclear how he had obtained the credentials.
Robbins had entered Fenway through an area marked “authorized personnel only,” the statement said.
Dude just looks like he would steal a glove.
