Missouri Man Charged With Stealing $46K in Equipment From Dolphins at Wild-Card Game


Prosecutors in Jackson County, Mo. charged a Kansas City man Wednesday with the theft of approximately $46,000 worth of equipment from the Miami Dolphins in January.

Joseph Brown Sr. is facing a $50,000 cash bond after being charged with a class C felony.

The alleged crime took place on Jan. 13, when the the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Dolphins 26–7 in arctic conditions to reach the AFC divisional round.

The day after the wild-card game, a Miami representative reported the theft to police of “a box truck containing team gear/equipment,” per WDAF-TV’s Brian Dulle, citing court documents.

According to those documents, the stolen goods included football pads, gloves, shoes, game film and other miscellaneous items—later traced to a vehicle belonging to Brown, per police.

The Dolphins valued the goods in total at $46,000.

This would be the second large-scale alleged equipment theft in the NFL in the past six months, following a massive loss of equipment by the Chicago Bears in September.
