For the third time in less than two years, Troy Glendenning was the victim of a burglary. Glendenning is the Colts' facilities manager and, as a result, has a pretty nice collection of Colts memorabilia. Twice in May 2013, Glendennig's home was burglarized and many of the mementos, including his Super Bowl ring, a number of autographs, and a Peyton Manning jersey, were all stolen.
This time, however, something much more meaningful was taken by the burglars: Glendenning's dog, Vegas. According to FOX59's Jessica Hayes, who first had the story, the burglars took the nine-month old boxer puppy, Vegas, and Glendenning understandably wants his dog back.
"Drop it off at a shelter, drop it off at my front door, make a phone call, something, take it to a vet whatever, just I want my dog back," Glendenning told FOX59. "That's my focus now. Not the television, not the computer, none of that, it's about the dog at this point. So whatever you can do to get my dog back, do it. Have a heart and do it."
The Colts are offering a $6,000 reward for the return of Vegas, and a number of players have stepped up to help with the search, including punter Pat McAfee and cornerback Vontae Davis:
