Eagles ex-worker accused of stealing from player
PHILADELPHIA -- A man hired to look after the cars of Philadelphia Eagles players during games is charged with stealing $225,000 from one player's bank account.
Federal officials said Wednesday that 37-year-old Robert Von Ryan of Philadelphia is charged with bank fraud.
U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger says Von Ryan went into Eagles guard Todd Herremans' car and took documents containing the player's checking account information, enabling him to transfer more than $225,000 from Herremans' account to his own from 2009 to 2012.
An Eagles spokesman says Von Ryan worked for a subcontractor security service that is no longer used by the team. The spokesman says Herremans was reimbursed by his insurance company.
It isn't clear whether Von Ryan hired an attorney.
