Israeli Basketball Team Robbed at Staples Center
The LAPD are on the look out for a thief who stole more than $15,000 in cash from Israeli basketball team members while their personal items were in a locker room at Staples Center. Police have a surveillance video of the thief who looks all dapper in a suit and sporting a clipboard and fake credentials. The thief also nabbed about $7,000 worth of watches. He went on his robbery spree while the Maccabi Electra Tel-Aviv played the Los Angeles Clippers in an exhibition game on October 20. The Israeli team noticed the theft during halftime of Maccabi's 108-96 loss.
