Parking lot attendant allegedly stole more than $225,000 from Philadelphia Eagles player

By Sam Gardner, FOXSports.com A parking lot attendant was hit with fraud charges Wednesday morning after he allegedly stole more than $225,000 from a Philadelphia Eagles player over the course of three years. According to Philly.com, 37-year-old Robert Von Ryan of Philadelphia was tasked with watching over players' cars at the team hotel while they played at Lincoln Financial Field. At some point, according to federal prosecutors, Von Ryan entered the vehicle of Eagles offensive lineman Todd Herremans and stole documents containing Herremans’ bank account information. Then, between 2009 and 2012, Von Ryan used the number to transfer $225,034.52 from Herremans' checking account into his own. If Von Ryan was, indeed, stealing the money, it’s not clear how he planned on continuing to get away with it — Herremans is loaded, having signed a 3-year extension in 2012 worth up to $21 million, but he’s not Scrooge McDuck rich and he’s gonna notice if it goes missing. But, of course, if he had an answer for that, he probably wouldn’t have gotten caught. If convicted, Von Ryan, who was not an Eagles employee, could face 30 years in jail and a $1 million fine.
