Some of the belongings stolen from the University of Colorado football team during their game against UCLA at the Rose Bowl last week were being returned to players, police told NBC News.
The Pasadena Police Department confirmed Friday they recovered several items and more had been identified.
Police said they served search warrants and described the thieves as juveniles.
Several Colorado players told police that jewelry left in the locker room was missing when they returned after the 28-16 loss to the Bruins, Pasadena police told NBC News.
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
In their visit to the Rose Bowl on Saturday, the Buffaloes dropped to 4-4 after opening the season with three straight wins.
Players from the away side returned to the locker room after their defeat to the Bruins to find some of their items missing.
The University of Colorado issued a statement Monday.
“We are aware of players having personal belongings taken from the CU visiting locker room during Saturday’s game against UCLA at the Rose Bowl,” the school said. “We are in contact with both the UCLA and Pasadena police. The Pasadena Police Department is the lead agency handling the investigation.”
Coming off a dismal 1-11 season in 2022, the Buffaloes became one of college football’s most talked-about teams following the hiring of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders as head coach.
