Items belonging to Chicago Bears first-round pick Roquan Smith were recovered in Summerville late Tuesday night.
Smith reported to the Athens-Clarke County Police Department that several prized jerseys and other items were stolen from his 2018 BWM on Saturday. Jerseys from his national championship, Rose Bowl and Taxslayer bowl games as a linebacker with the University of Georgia were taken.
Those three jerseys and some of Smith’s other possessions were recovered Tuesday night in Chattooga County, according to Summerville Police Detective Ty Hutchins…
Athens police found a fingerprint on Smith’s car and traced it to a Summerville teenager who is attending UGA.
Allegedly the teenager confessed that he took some of the items and brought them to his father’s house in Summerville.
Det. Hutchins, Chief Detective Brian Ozment and Summerville Policeman Gary Pruitt went to the teenager’s home and spoke with the father Tuesday night.
“He was shocked,” Det. Hutchins said when the father was informed of the theft. Cops were ushered into the house and immediately found the items sitting in the closet.
If life imitates art, I presume the miscreant will be dismissed from Georgia and wind up enrolling at Auburn.
