FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a Rhode Island man visiting the New England Patriots Hall of Fame took a Tom Brady jersey off a display and walked off with it.
Zanini Cineus, of Providence, was freed on personal recognizance after a not guilty plea to a larceny charge was entered on his behalf at his arraignment Thursday.
Police say the 33-year-old was wearing the jersey under his jacket when he was apprehended Thursday still in the vicinity of the hall of fame.
Police say the signed jersey is worth $10,000. The team says it had not been worn in a game.
Cineus’s lawyer, Bill Galvin, declined to comment.
This isn’t the first time one of Brady’s jerseys went missing. The quarterback’s game-worn jersey was stolen out of the locker room after the Patriots’ 34-28 overtime Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons in 2017.
