Per a report from Philly.com, an attendant responsible for watching Philadelphia Eagles players’ cars has been accused of stealing over $225,000 from offensive lineman Todd Herremans personal bank account.
Robert Von Ryan, 37, of Philadelphia, was charged with bank fraud. According to federal prosecutors, Von Ryan entered the vehicle of an Eagle identified as “T.H.” From the car, he took documents that contained the player’s checking account number.
Using the number, Von Ryan transfered $225,034.52 from Herremans’ UBS checking account to his own, said U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger. The transfers occured between 2009 and 2012.
According to the report, Von Ryan was a subcontractor and not a direct employee of the team. If convicted, he faces up to a 30 year sentence and a fine of $1 million.
Moral of the story? Never leave banking information laying around in your car, whether you’re a multi-millionaire or rolling around with just hundreds in your bank account. This could happen to anyone.
