Former NFL star Vince Wilfork’s son, D’Aundre Holmes-Wilfork, was reportedly arrested in May for allegedly stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from his father, per John Wayne Ferguson of Galveston County Daily News.
What was reported missing was Wilfork’s two Super Bowl rings and two AFC championship rings he won with the Patriots along with a college championship ring from his career at Miami.
According to the police complaint, Wilfork told authorities that he did not report the jewelry missing or stolen immediately because he was unsure if it was packed in storage. In early May, he was contacted by a Patriots fan informing him of a post in a memorabilia group saying that his Super Bowl rings were for sale, which led to the filing of a police report.
Police took over from there as they made contact with the individual who posted the rings on the memorabilia group. The individual told police he purchased them from Wilfork’s son for $62,000 in 2020. The rings have since been turned over to police.
Police also discovered that eight other pieces of Wilfork’s jewelry were sold in March of 2020, for $4,600.
The 23-year-old was arrested on May 22 and charged with theft of property greater than $300,000 in Galveston County, Texas. He is not currently listed in jail as of Wednesday evening.
