AMES – Nine Iowa football players and coaches had items including cellphones and cash stolen from their locker room during Saturday night’s win at Iowa State.
The Hawkeyes noticed the missing items when they returned to their locker room following a 27-21 win over the rival Cyclones.
The Iowa State athletic department said the amount of cash missing was about $50, and that athletic director Jamie Pollard visited with Iowa counterpart Gary Barta and coach Kirk Ferentz to express his regret for the incident.
The Iowa State University police department said Monday that the locker room was staffed by private security. Only those with proper credentials were supposed to be allowed in.
Campus police are urging anyone with information regarding the break-in to contact them as soon as possible.
The Iowa State athletic department has promised to reimburse the victims if the parties responsible for the break-in aren’t caught.
