Nights before Halloween are always tumultuous in any city, but this past Saturday night was especially disturbing for players of the Colorado Buffaloes.
By Briony James
During their football game against UCLA, at the Rose Bowl, the Buffaloes’ locker room was broken into and at least five players had jewelry and other valuables stolen.
The jewelry alone is said to be worth thousands of dollars, and police are unsure of exactly how the locker room was breached during the game. So far, UCLA hasn’t issued a statement** but considering the value of the items, it’s clear that legal action will follow, as well as the involvement of local law enforcement.*
A video on X (formerly Twitter) shows one of the Buffs players, Cam’Ron Silmon-Craig, talking about the incident outside the locker room after the game. Simon-Craig shared the video with the headline: “IN LOCKER ROOM YOU WOULD THINK YOUR STUFF SAFE MAN, ITS CRAZY”.
Lt. Tim Bundy with the Pasadena Police Department released the following statement:
On Saturday, October 28th, at 9:22 pm, the Pasadena Police Department was notified of a theft that took place in the University of Colorado locker room during the UCLA vs. Colorado football game at the Rose Bowl. The theft reportedly involved several pieces of jewelry and other miscellaneous personal and football items. At this point, the value of the loss is undetermined. Detectives will check the area for relevant security camera footage as part of the investigation and will review any existing video. Anyone with information on the theft should contact the Pasadena Police Department at 626-744-4241.”
UCLA has released a statement saying that it’s “in communication with law enforcement, Rose Bowl Stadium officials and the University of Colorado on the matter.”
