A man who worked as a parking lot attendant guarding the cars of Eagles players is accused of accessing the car of offensive lineman Todd Herremans, getting his bank account information, and stealing more than $225,000 over the course of four years.
Philly.com reports that a 37-year-old Philadelphia man named Robert Von Ryan has been charged with bank fraud. Federal prosecutors say Von Ryan entered the vehicle of an Eagles player, took documents that included the player’s checking account number, then began transferring money from the player’s checking account into his own checking account. Starting in 2009 and ending in 2012, Von Ryan transferred a total of $225,034.52, prosecutors say.
The Eagles have confirmed that Herremans is the victim in the case. The team says the attendant was a subcontractor and not an employee of the Eagles.
Von Ryan could be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
