The son of former Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has been arrested and charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of property from his father, including two Super Bowl rings.

The Galveston Daily News reports that 23-year-old D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork was arrested and charged with theft of property greater than $300,000.

Vince Wilfork reported on May 10 that he was missing two Super Bowl rings, two AFC championship rings, a college football national championship ring, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. A Patriots fan who heard about Wilfork’s missing rings contacted Wilfork to inform him that someone had been offering Wilfork’s rings for sale in an online sports memorabilia community.

It turned out that the person offering them for sale had previously paid $62,000 to Wilfork’s son for the rings. The memorabilia dealer, who didn’t know that Wilfork’s son didn’t have permission to sell the rings, handed them over to police when informed they had been reported stolen.

Holmes-Wilfork was arrested and has been released on a $300,000 bond.

  1. The loss I’m sure is a huge one it is most of his highest treasures from his career. But the theft being by his son, the intimacy of that betrayal is something that will probably be a schism time can’t fix for that family. What a sad story of how those closest to us can inflict the deepest wounds.

  2. That’s awful. Bad enough to be burgled, but by your own SON? That’s cold.

  3. There’s obviously bigger problems in the family than money. I hope they can fix things.

    I was going to say, Thanksgiving Dinner’s going to be a li’l awkward this fall, but that’d be wrong….

  4. Same son that was arrested 5 years ago on felony drug charges. As a dad this breaks my heart to read. I can only imagine the pain their family’s going through.

  5. Looking past how sad this is, it’s also unbelievably stupid. Like it would never get back to him that his stuff had been auctioned off publicly online? Either his son is so into an addiction he can’t think straight or he’s the dimmest bulb around.

  6. I would think that the dealer would have contacted Vince before buying the rings from another party even if it was his son. 62 grand seems like a heck of a bargain—maybe that’s why he didn’t contact Vince?

  7. It’s one thing to get robbed but to be robbed by your own son is devastating. What an idiot the son is

  8. Like everyone else, I feel sad for Vince. He was such a great guy with the Patriots and seems like a real quality human being. Heartbreaking.

    Sorry, but I have absolutely no sympathy for the son. None whatsoever.

    Who said they had sympathy for the son? I do have sympathy for Vince.

  10. Vince seemed like a nice guy, but something went wrong in parenting that led to this outcome. If you’re worth tens of millions this really shouldn’t ever happen.

    What? Anyone can get addicted to drugs regardless of social class. If your kid is on drugs, that doesn’t make you a bad parent. How you handle it makes you a good, bad, or indifferent parent. Vince isn’t trying to cover it up or sweep it away. He is holding his kid responsible for his actions.

  12. What a P.O.S. that kid is… To do something like that to your own father.

    He’s probably had every chance in life you can have and he does this. Vince is a proud man.

    He has to be devastated at this level of betrayal… Let the kid stay in jail and rot.

    Maybe he can figure it out then. Although, I doubt it….. Best of Luck Vince..

    You don’t deserve that Albatross…
