San Francisco Thief Stole $500,000 Of Jewelry, Electronics Out Of A Rod’s Car: Report

The first piece of advice many people receive when they come to the Bay Area is not to leave valuables in their car.

Alex Rodriguez didn’t get the memo, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The major league star-turned-broadcaster was in San Francisco this weekend to broadcast Sunday’s wild Giants win over the Phillies.

A-Rod had about $500,000 in jewelry and electronics stolen from a rental SUV he parked on the street a few blocks from Oracle Park Sunday night.

The Chronicle’s report says a thief broke into the Nissan SUV sometime between 9 and 11 p.m. as Rodriguez ate dinner with others from ESPN’s broadcast after the game. And while a police spokesperson could only confirm that a camera, a laptop, jewlery and a bag were stolen from a private citizen, the publication cited multiple sources confirming the victim was Rodriguez.

The report says break-ins are down in San Francisco, but perhaps the city could use some of the $4 million the state of California gave to South Bay and East Bay cities to curb break-ins.

Rodriguez has been part of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball team since last year. He had been a consultant with the New York Yankees until he reportedly left that position last offseason.

The 14-time All Star has Hall of Fame-caliber stats, but his admitted use of banned performance-enhancing drugs has made it unlikely he’ll be enshrined anytime soon.
