The lesson here is don’t keep valuables in your car.  Especially if your car is a Rolls Royce.  Rays shortstop Wander Franco had a safe taken from his car which was parked in the parking lot of a Double Tree hotel in Jacksonville.  Franco was on a rehab assignment in Jacksonville when the safe was taken on June 22nd.

A list of the items stolen are below…

• A $300,000 gold, diamond-encrusted Cuban link chain and circle medallion with diamonds and a W in the center
• A $200,000 rose gold Cuban link chain with diamonds
• A $70,000 gold pendant with a medallion in green and blue lettering spelling “FRANCO 5”
• A $44,000 Platinum Rolex watch with diamonds
• A $20,000 American League championship ring
• A $20,000 championship ring from Durham
• A $5,000 gold pendant of Jerry the mouse from the “Tom and Jerry” cartoon
