Missouri man charged with stealing Dolphins’ equipment

After the Miami Dolphins were eliminated from the playoffs by the Kansas City Chiefs, they had more losses to worry about than just the result on the field at Arrowhead Stadium.

According to court documents, Missouri police officers responded to a theft the day after the Jan. 13 game. Representatives from the Dolphins said a team truck that held both gear and equipment was broken into and items worth more than $45,000 were missing.

On Wednesday, two months after the contest, Jackson County prosecutors charged Joseph Brown Sr. with felony theft.

The documents claim that media equipment, football equipment (including pads, gloves and shoes) and game film, along with other items, were taken.

Brown had previously been convicted of felony theft in 2021, according to court documents. His bond was set at $50,000.
