Indianapolis Police are investigating two sports memorabilia thefts. One man says he had a large collection of autographed items stolen along with a 24-year collection of baseball cards and other items during a break-in at his storage unit. The theft occurred within one day of a burglary at a local sports card shop.
The Dugout Collectible Shop’s crook was caught on camera. He needed only eight minutes to steal about $8,000 worth of merchandise. Owner James McWhorter told police his list of missing items includes a Peyton Manning signed football, some Michael Jordan cards, an Xbox and cash.
