Agent: Police report regarding Charles Godfrey’s stolen watches is false

The story that someone stole $125,000 worth of watches from Panthers safety Charles Godfrey is compelling.  It would be even more compelling if it were, you know, true.

Agent Doug Hendrickson tells PFT that no one has stolen anything from Godfrey, and that the police report was made by someone claiming to be Godfrey.

Hendrickson said that Godfrey already has met with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police in an effort to rectify the situation.

The Charlotte Observer obtained the police report, which claimed that a package with a pair of expensive watches had been delivered to Godfrey’s home, but that Godfrey never received them.

A third-round pick in 2008, Godfrey suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Week Two of the 2013 season.

    I’m sure there’s a way we can blame Richard Sherman.

    Wait, were there any watches delivered or was that all made up too?

    Desean had them.

    In Carolina it is called “watches”
    In Colorado and Washington it is called……..well, you know.

    If there was no box of watches stolen then how did the FedEx statement that they had been delivered happen? Either the reporters made it up or there was a fraud scam starting and a change of heart/mind happened.

    Well then, where are the watches, dammit?

    Well at least we can rule out Keith Hernandez as a suspect….

    lost time

    No one stole Charles’ machine guns or lab equipment either.

    Not lost time, someone is apparently trying to make up time…

  14. honolulubluekoolaid says: Jan 23, 2014 9:03 PM

    It happened/it didn’t happen….who cares.

    Why would anyone buy 2 watches worth $125k?

    Bet you Bill Gates and Warren Buffet combined would not spend over $300 for something that tells you what time it is.

    Eli Manning says, “buy a nice citizen, about $200-$500 bucks.”

    No wonder a lot of athletes go broke as quick as they got rich! 125k on 2 watches. Most people use their cell phones to keep time anymore.
    These guys will drop 250k on stuff, but can’t hire a driver when they go out drinking and cost themselves DUIs, suspensions, and other avoidable circumstances.

    My winter boots were stolen out of my apartment hallway.

    2 weeks later, my Chinese food order arrives and the delivery man is wearing them.

    Moral of the story, tip well or walk barefoot in the snow.

    blame the Pats

    no legit watch thefts since spygate

    Fed-Ex reported that the watches WERE delivered, so the ‘false’ police report had to have been filed by someone who knew where Godfrey lived, that he had ordered the watches, and that the watches had been delivered by Fed-ex. Clearly a complete stranger/master criminal.

    Fed-Ex reported that the watches WERE delivered, so the ‘false’ police report had to have been filed by someone who knew where Godfrey lived, that he had ordered the watches, and that Fed-Ex had delivered them. And knew enough about Godfrey to give enough information (phone number, address, make and value of the watches) to file a police report. Clearly the work of Professor Moriarty!
