Autographed Michael Jordan Jersey Swiped from Tony Parker: An Inside Job?

By Javier Lavagnino, Esq. | Last updated on

It seems you can't trust anyone these days... NBA star Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs certainly might have found that out the hard way after an autographed Michael Jordan jersey got stolen from out of a gym that was under construction at his home.

The suspect in the case of the missing MJ jersey? No, not Eva, come on. Turns out it might have been an inside job, like, way, way inside. According to the AP, detectives working the case found a listing for the very same Jersey on Craigslist (can any more crimes get tied in some way to Craigslist?) that had been put up by one Christopher James Carolan.

Turns out Carolan worked for the security company hired to protect the Parker home, and, if that's not enough, he also had an outstanding warrant for burglary in a separate case. Just a quick reminder that employer background checks are usually a pretty good idea, and one might think they'd be particularly handy for a security company. A story in the San Antonio Express News doesn't really clarify a whole lot about how Carolan got hired, but for what it's worth, he's been hired at more than one security company. A representative of one of the companies explained they might not know if a criminal case gets filed against an employee after they are hired.

At any rate, although it's not clear from the stories whether His Airness's jersey was recovered, but hopefully it will get back to Parker's gym soon.
