A San Antonio Spurs fan is missing some prized memorabilia after a burglar snuck into his Potomac home and took it.
A basketball signed by the 2005 San Antonio Spurs championship team, a basketball signed by the 2007 San Antonio Spurs championship team and two No. 21 San Antonio Spurs jerseys autographed by Tim Duncan were stolen from the house on the 8900 block of Holly Leaf Lane June 22. Police say the homeowners went for a walk about 1:30 p.m. that day and returned to find the items missing.
Police are now hoping someone with their eye on sports memorabilia might have seen the stolen goods.
“Due to the unique nature of the stolen items, investigators are asking for tips from the public,” Officer Janelle Smith said.
Police are asking anyone who may have information about this crime or the stolen memorabilia to call 301-657-0112 or the department’s anonymous tip line at 866-411-8477. Crime solvers are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to an arrest or indictment of the crime.
