Ed Reed Gets Robbed While Going to the Bank! [Details]
Free-agent saftey Ed Reed who is known for the stealing the ball away from quarterbacks on Sundays got something stolen from him yesterday, $50,000 in cash!
The future Hall of Famer was already having a rough year after being released by the Houston Texans and finishing with the New York Jets where he only had 3 interceptions which for his standards is sub par at best.
According to ESPN.com Reed withdrew the $50K out of a bank in Houston. Then was on his way to another bank to make a second transaction.
When Reed arrived to the second bank he left the cash on the passenger seat of his vehicle. When he returned the passenger side window was smashed and the money was gone.
According to ESPN.com:
The incident occurred around 3 p.m. The police report said the cash was in a “bag,” although it was described as an “envelope” in another report, a police spokesperson said.
Police say the investigation is still open and the police report does not say why Reed was carrying so much money.
