Tampa Bay Rays star Evan Longoria probably found it difficult to explain to cops how an AK-47 was among the goods stolen from his rented house during spring training. Imagine how he responded when the cops told him they found his stolen goods — which included a "Rubbermaid style container" full of marijuana.
"We don't believe you, Mr. Longoria," we can imagine the officers saying, "Ricky Williams no longer lives in Florida."
In March, the rented home of Rays teammates Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac was robbed. The three were sharing a home in Port Charlotte, Fla., during spring training.
Recently, cops announced arrests in connection with the crime and reported that they were able to recover the stolen goods. Among them were watches, computers, an Xbox 360, Longoria's AK-47 and a container of pot.
"We've decided, obviously, the three of us as a group and the organization as a whole, to just let the police do their job and us to keep that to ourselves," Longoria said prior to Friday's game against the Yankees. "We're just not going to make a comment."
