Three Men Arrested While ‘Looking For a Lost Wallet’
This could be one of the best excuses for breaking and entering you’ll ever hear. Have you ever woken up one morning and thought to yourself, “crap, I can’t find my wallet”? It’s probably happened to everyone at some point. Maybe you misplaced it. Maybe it was stolen. Maybe you left it in your car. Maybe you were intoxicated the night before and just can’t seem to remember where you put all of your things. And maybe, just maybe, you left it at Heinz Field during a Steelers game back in December.
That’s the story three Texas men gave after they were arrested and charged with criminal trespass and conspiracy to commit criminal trespass at Heinz Field early Sunday morning. Security said the men “used themselves like human ladders” in an attempt to get over the gate and into the stadium. The one of three who lost his wallet must have had a good amount of cash in it. He also must be in a pinch — or perhaps unemployed — if he’s just now attempting to reclaim something he’s been missing for five months.
Pittsburgh Police Sgt. Patrick Knapp told reporters, “the story’s not credible.” Perhaps if they had claimed to be searching for Ben Roethlisberger’s dignity, the police would have cut him a break.
