Bowen tweeted that Herremans, who is in his ninth NFL season, has gotten all of the money back.

The story is coming to light because the attendant, 37-year-old Robert Von Ryan, is being charged with bank fraud. If convicted Von Ryan could get up to 30 months in prison and a $1 million fine, said.

The team told that Von Ryan was a subcontractor and not a team employee. Still, it must be a scary story for the players, who trust those who are supposed to be protecting their belongings.
