BOSTON (CBS) – A Concord man has been charged with trying to steal a baseball glove from the Red Sox clubhouse during the American League pennant celebration early Sunday morning at Fenway Park.
Thomas Robbins, 23, was charged with attempted larceny and arraigned Monday in Roxbury District Court, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.
Police were called to the clubhouse around 2:30 a.m. after Red Sox security saw a man holding a glove that belonged to first baseman Mike Napoli.
According to the police report, Robbins dropped the glove and walked away.
When he was confronted by officers in the players’ parking lot, he claimed he was lost and did not know how he ended up there.
Robbins was then arrested and booked.
Security told police they don’t know how Robbins was able to get into the clubhouse, but noted that he may have been in the press box earlier because he had credentials from Major League Baseball and the Red Sox public relations department in his pocket.
Napoli’s glove, according to the police report, is worth $450.
Robbins was released Monday on $300 bail. He was ordered to stay away from Fenway Park.
He is due back in court December 11.
