Report: Connecticut Woman Tries to Sell $28,000 Worth of Father’s Sports Memorabilia on eBay


Watch out for daughters. They're always up to no good.

A Westport, Conn., man found that out while perusing the sports memorabilia on eBay. After bidding on a few items, he apparently realized that some of the stuff looked familiar.

It turned out his daughter, Stephanie Bernier, 21, of Stratford, Conn., had stolen the memorabilia and sold it to a local dealer, the Greenwich Time reports. Bernier had told the dealer her father was dead, according to the Time.

She was charged with first-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny.

Among the items reportedly sold on eBay were a 1933 World Series program for $1,000, a 1955 Yankee Yearbook for $750 and a 1951 All-Star program for $300.

Bernier's father first became aware of his daughter's larceny habits back in January, when he found his autographed Roger Clemens baseball and several certificates of authenticity for other signed baseballs in her backpack, the Time reports.

Bernier's troubles do not seem to be confined to baseballs and programs. She damaged a friend's property in a dispute last year and was also arrested for drug possession, Busted Coverage points out.
