Burglars Take Ohio State Memorabilia From Ohio Stadium

Police were working to find those who were responsible for a burglary that hit the heart of the Ohio State campus-- the ‘Shoe.

Investigators said that they felt they were close to identifying one of the suspects because a hat left behind at the scene.

"Six of the suites were entered," said Richard Morman, of the Ohio State University Police. "Several flat screen televisions were taken and also some photos off the wall."

Some photos included autographs of six former Ohio State football players. Police said that the thieves also made off with other items.

"About 59 items of Ohio State memorabilia were taken," Morman said.

Police said that the thieves climbed the fence to get inside the stadium.

"Then (they) used a trashcan to enter into one of the patio areas of one of the suits that may have been left unlocked," Morman said.

Investigators said that they hoped a hat left behind would help them track down one of the burglars.

"It's a distinctive ball cap from the Wisconsin Timberattlers, which is a minor league softball team, which is affiliated with the Milwaukee brewers. It’s purple in color. Has a black W in front of it," Mormon said.

Police have been monitoring Craigslist and Facebook to see if anyone is attempting to sell the memorabilia.
