MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 26 (UPI) -- New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was the victim of an apparent burglary at a Miami Beach, Fla., hotel, a police report indicated Tuesday.

The 34-year-old, who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve, told police diamond earrings, wristwatches, a gold necklace and other items worth $500,000 were stolen from his room at the Fontainebleau Hotel, WFOR-TV, Miami, reported.

The Miami Beach Police Department report indicated Rogers and some friends came back to his hotel room at 7 a.m. in the company of a woman they had met earlier at the Club Liv.
