JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police are investigating after a Jacksonville Jaguars player had his vehicle, and several high-value items inside, stolen from his apartment complex.
Running back Richard Murphy's orange 2010 Dodge Ram truck was taken from the City Gate Apartments in the 8400 block of Gate Parkway some time between 8 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday.
It was later found up on cinder blocks stripped and abandoned in the 8600 block of Newton Road, according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office police report.
Among the stolen items were $15,000 truck rims with burnt orange paint, a 2007 LSU National Championship ring, a 2007 SEC Championship ring, a 2006 Sugar Bowl Championship ring, and a 2007 LSU Championship gift ring. Combined, all four rings are valued at $1,000.
Also stolen was a 12-gauge shotgun, but that was later recovered, according to the police report. The gun was placed in the JSO property room as a personal item at the request of Murphy and Jaguars Security Director Skip Richardson.
The vehicle was scheduled to be processed by a JSO Crime Scene Detective due to the high value of the items stolen. The property manager at Murphy's complex is in the process of reviewing the security tapes from the time period during which Murphy's truck was stolen.
