Mets first baseman Lucas Duda filed a police report claiming that he had $1,600 worth of possessions stolen by a moving company hired by the team to move him into a new apartment while he was out of town.
Some details from Tina Moore of the New York Daily News:
Duda, 28, left town with the team on April 6, and gave the moving company access to his old pad on 153rd St. in Kew Gardens Hills, Queens, sources said. He returned home to his new apartment on April 17 and found his front door open and several of his items missing, the sources said. The slugger was missing a checkbook, a knock-off Breitling watch, two jackets and a bracelet, the sources said, noting the total value of the items was about $1,600.
For some reason someone stealing a knock-off watch seems funny to me, but I’m guessing it was probably still more expensive than any watch I’ve ever owned. Also, having moved within the past three months I can definitely say that handing over all of your possessions to strangers is extremely stressful and I can’t imagine letting those strangers move you into a new place while you weren’t even around to check things out.
