A sticky-fingered football fan was arrested Saturday night in connect- ion with the theft of quarterback Timmy Chang’s helmet.
Police responded to a call around 10 p.m. after the Tiger-Cats’ 30-5 home-opening loss to the Toronto Argos.
“Apparently after the game the helmet was left accessible to a fan who took it,” said east-end Staff Sergeant Glenn Bullock, who couldn’t say how the helmet was nabbed. The man left the stadium with it and was spotted by an off-duty officer working at the game and arrested.
Fans discussing the theft online on a Ticat chat room described seeing the man being led back into Ivor Wynne in handcuffs, accompanied by officers and a stadium staff member who was holding the helmet.
The man was charged with possession of stolen property and theft under $5,000. He was released that night to appear in court later.
One fan signed on as Ticatsgrr8 wrote: “There are too many good Ticat fans out there who bid honestly for Ticats memorabilia. You don’t steal directly off your team. End of story.”
