Butts-Mehre Locker Room Heist: the truth uncovered

No one else is reporting the truth so I'll throw it out there for public consumption. In case you haven't heard, thieves made off with some football players' valuables last Thursday afternoon. 

Here's the campus paper's write up:

Seven members of the Georgia football team had items stolen from their lockers in the Butts-Mehre Building on Thursday afternoon, according to University Police reports.
“There was a pretty big open house event going on that night,” said Lt. Eric Dellinger of the University Police Department. “There were a number of non-athletic affiliated people being shown around. We just have no way of accounting for who was in the building or where they were.”
A pair of Nike shoes, four iPods, two iPhones and two iPhone cases were taken between 2:20 p.m. and 6:20 p.m. The locker room is secured by a fingerprint system, but several of the lockers broken into had no locks. Two didn’t have doors.
One player’s iPhone was “in an open area within the locker room at the time of the theft,” according to the report.
The total loss value of everything taken was $1,990.
What's not being said you ask? Well, the fact that it was the UGA police force that gave the Red and Black sports staff access to the lockers, ergo the valuables. If they can account for Mudcat's car at all times they can certainly account for some "non-athletic people"...ie, UGA beat writers (wink, wink...nudge, nudge).

The only thing that is not clear at this point is exactly which alley they emerged from after breaking their ankles.

Stay tuned.
