Rings found following Frost home burglary, other items still missing
Lincoln Police said Huskers Head Coach Scott Frost's home was burglarized over the weekend, but more than a dozen Championship rings were not taken.
The rings were originally believed to have been stolen, but LPD confirmed Monday evening that Frost found the rings in his garage, as well as the Wii and a helmet.
No other Husker memorabilia was taken.
LPD said Monday morning that $165,000 worth of items were stolen during the incident that took place sometime between Friday at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday evening at 6 p.m.
The home, which is located in a neighborhood near 27th and Pine Lake Road, is currently being renovated and is unoccupied.
Police said among the things stolen are five pairs of Oregon Air Jordan shoes and several photos and helmets.
Police said entry was gained through an unlocked walk in door in the garage.
An investigation into the burglary is ongoing.
Frost released a statement Monday afternoon, saying, "The incident that occurred at our home is obviously very disappointing and discouraging. All of our belongings were gone through and it will take some time to determine exactly what is missing and the value of those items. I would like to clarify that some items initially reported as missing have been found, including some of the rings listed on the police report. Also, the value of what we believe to actually be missing is lower than what has been publicly reported.”
LPD is asking anyone with information to contact authorities at 402-441-6000.
