Vince Wilfork’s son was arrested and charged last month for allegedly stealing his father’s two Super Bowl rings and several other expensive pieces of jewelry.
23-year-old, D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork, was arrested on May 22 and charged with theft of property worth roughly $300,000, according to the Galveston County Daily News.
In addition to the missing jewelry, Wilfork’s AFC Championship rings and his Miami Hurricanes college football championship ring were also reported missing.
After a Patriots fan contacted Wilfork to inform him that someone was trying to sell the rings online through a virtual sports memorabilia community, Vince filed a missing items report to authorities. Once the online dealer was made aware that the rings were stolen, he immediately returned them to authorities. Police reported that Holmes-Wilfork charged the buyer $62,000 for them.
Holmes-Wilfork was once a walk-on linebacker at the University of Houston but was later removed from the team after he was arrested in Friendswood, Texas, on felony drug charges, according to the NY Times.
Wilfork played 13 seasons, most of them being with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, and has won two AFC Championships, two Super Bowls, and has been selected to 5 Pro Bowls. The 300-pound superstar retired in 2017 after signing a one-day contract with the Patriots.
Holmes-Wilfork’s bond was set at $300,000, and he is no longer listed in custody at the jail as of Tuesday morning.
