Alleged thief walks out of Patriots Hall of Fame wearing one of Tom Brady’s jerseys

Police say the thief was wearing the jersey under his jacket when he was apprehended not far from the Hall of Fame.

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.
