Stealing from the site of a memorial?
That actually happened outside Citizens Bank Park on Thursday.
Complete coverage of the Fightin' Phils and their MLB rivals from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
According to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark, a person tried snatching a jersey from the tribute for Roy Halladay.
The key word here is tried. Police told NBC 10 Philadelphia that an officer assigned to the K9 Unit chased down the culprit, a male, and arrested him.
From the NBC 10 Philadelphia article:
Police spokesman Sgt. Eric Gripp said the man may not face a theft charge, however. Since police do not know who owns the jersey, they're not able to charge him with that crime.
Officers issued the man a disorderly conduct summons and sent him on his way, Gripp said.
Phillies fans have started and built a beautiful scene outside the ballpark commemorating the beloved Halladay, who died tragically on Tuesday in a plane crash.
