Former New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork’s has to be disappointed after finding out his son has been arrested, and charged for stealing Vince’s Super Bowl rings along with over $300,000 worth of property.
D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork was arrested May 22 in Friendswood, Texas, and charged with theft of property greater than $300,000, the Galveston County Daily News reported Tuesday after the local district attorney’s office released a police complaint about the matter. Two Super Bowl rings, two AFC championship rings and a college football championship ring were among several items of jewelry that Vince Wilfork reported missing May 10, according to the complaint.
A Patriots fan who heard about Wilfork’s missing rings contacted Wilfork to inform him that someone had been offering Wilfork’s rings for sale in an online sports memorabilia community.
It turned out that the person offering them for sale had previously paid $62,000 to Wilfork’s son for the rings. The memorabilia dealer, who didn’t know that Wilfork’s son didn’t have permission to sell the rings, handed them over to police when informed they had been reported stolen.
Holmes-Wilfork was arrested and has been released on a $300,000 bond.
I am not sure how he could look his father in the face again after doing that.
Items police allege were sold after being stolen include two Super Bowl championship rings Vince Wilfork won while playing for the New England Patriots. https://t.co/cyIhgYfdjz
