Washington Redskins director of security Ed Burke said that a large sum of money and passport belonging to Coach Mike Shanahan have not been found after the coach reported them missing following the teamâ€™s game in Pittsburgh on Oct. 28.
As Dan Steinberg pointed out Wednesdayâ€™s edition of Morning Pixels, according to a story in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Shanahan reported $3,700 and his passport were missing from a leather briefcase that was left in an unsecured visitors locker room during the game against the Steelers.
The Tribune-Review saidÂ “Despite being told that the locker room was secured throughout the game, Shanahan chose to file a report with Pittsburgh police. Officers subsequently met with Ed Burke, the Redskinsâ€™ security director.”
The paper also said that the report was later withdrawn the following day after the money and passport were found in another bag.
But thatâ€™s not the case, according to Burke.
In a statement released by the team Thursday morning, Burke said: â€śMike Shanahan did have money and a passport stolen out of his locker room in Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh Police insisted on filing a police report because of the missing passport. There is an ongoing investigation. The missing property was not stowed in another bag as reported.â€ť
