• Jacksonville Jaguars fan searches for jerseys stolen in break-in

    By: Brittney Donovan , Action News Jax


    A Jacksonville father says he came home after a long day at work to find the door to his apartment kicked in and his home ransacked.

    “They stole my TV and PlayStation 4, all the games, everything,” Samuel Clermont said.

    Inside his room, his laptop and a pillow case were missing.


    He believes the pillow case was used to tote away his two Jacksonville Jaguars jerseys, including a white, team-issued Blake Bortles jersey that was signed by Bortles during his rookie season.

    He said that along with his Demetrius McCray jersey was in plain view inside his closet. His Nick Foles jersey, hidden among other clothes, was left behind.

    Clermont believes the thieves may have slipped the items out the back door. He found the safety lock removed and the door open.

    "The cops said (the thieves) probably watched my normal schedule of when I come and also when I go," he said.

    The thieves also left something behind that he hopes could lead to an arrest -- a keycard to a gate.

    He’s watching local internet postings for the jerseys and his limited-edition Spider-Man PS4.

    Clermont said he can replace the material items, but with another baby on the way it's a setback.

    He said he’s just glad his girlfriend and 11-year-old son weren’t home when the thieves busted in.

    “If my son was here, if I was home it would’ve been a different story,” he said.
