Former Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork’s son has been charged with theft of property greater than $300,000 after allegedly stealing his father’s two Super Bowl rings.
D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork was arrested last month and is currently awaiting trial in Galveston County, Texas, according to inmate records.
Wilfork’s AFC Championship rings, Miami Hurricanes college football championship ring, necklaces, bracelets and earrings were also reported missing.
Wilfork reported his missing possessions to authorities on May 10, and not long after, a Patriots fan noticed someone was selling Wilfork’s Super Bowl rings in an online sports memorabilia community.
The person selling them said they paid $62,000 to Holmes-Wilfork for the rings. When the memorabilia dealer found out they were stolen, he handed them over to police as evidence.
Holmes-Wilfork, 23, was a linebacker in high school and walked onto the football program at Houston. But he was kicked off the team his freshman year after he was was arrested in Friendswood on felony drug charges.
