Stolen Red Sox Memorabilia Recovered in New York

Stolen Red Sox Memorabilia Recovered in New York

Stolen Boston Red Sox memorabilia was recently recovered after the alleged thief, Jamie Pritchard Holland, tried to sell them through online auction website Lelands.com. He managed to nab nearly $25,000 worth of items from the club. In addition to an assortment of caps, jackets, jerseys and helmets, Holland had landed a pair of Dustin Pedroia's cleats, Kevin Youkilis' glove, the 380 foot marker from the Fenway outfield wall and a home plate.

However days before the start of the auction, MLB investigators tipped off law enforcement officials that the items were the same ones that were stolen from Fenway Park. Shortly thereafter police raided Lelands.com's Long Island warehouse and put a stop to the upcoming auction.

Holland was able to convince the auction site that the sale was legitimate by telling them the money would be going toward his sick child's medical bills. Authorities later discovered that Holland has no children. However his con was so convincing that he was able to get Johnny Pesky to sign the outfield marker he had stolen in order to add to its potential sale value.

Holland has been charged with receiving stolen property by authorities in Massachusetts and New York and is currently being held on $25,000 bond.

  1. How do you steal the outfield marker or even Dustin’s clets I mean really and how can you expect to sell them, sooner or later some would notice, right?
