UCLA Football Recruits Identified as Thieves in Rose Bowl Locker Room Incident

Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California.

The Pasadena Public Information Office confirmed on Monday that four juveniles from Beaumont High School in Riverside County, identified as UCLA football recruits, were responsible for stealing valuables from the Colorado players’ locker rooms during an October 28 event at the Rose Bowl. The incident, first reported by Jason Brown of the Coach JB Show, involved the theft of items including jewelry. The names of the involved juveniles have not been disclosed.

The suspects were arrested earlier in November en route to a California high school state playoff game. Among the Colorado players affected were Jordan Domineck, Derrick McLendon, Cam’Ron Silmon-Craig, and Darius Sanders of Reach The People Media, who reported the theft of thousands in cash. Recent reports indicate that some of the stolen items have been successfully returned to the Colorado players

On November 13, the Beaumont Unified School District released a statement regarding the high school players’ suspected involvement with the crime.

“We are disappointed and disheartened to hear of the alleged involvement of Beaumont High School students in the incident at the UCLA-Colorado football game on October 28,” the statement provided to USA Today read. “We strive to promote strong character and integrity in our students, and the alleged actions do not represent our core values as a school, District, and community. While the students were not at the UCLA-Colorado football game as part of a school-sponsored event, the District is cooperating fully with Pasadena Police Department’s investigation.”
