Chicago White Sox GM Kenny Williams was the victim of robbery when his home was broken into recently and articles of clothing, a set of keys, and his 2005 World Series ring were stolen by quite possibly the strangest, and worst, burglar ever.
The alleged thief, 51-year-old Wayne L. Field III of Chicago, broke into the Williams’ house sometime between November 19-21. While inside the residence, Field apparently made himself right at home, knowing the Chicago general manager was out of town.
From NBC Chicago…
Williams confirmed the incident and said the man drank his beer, ate frozen pizza, surfed the internet and kicked his shoes off on the bed.
Oh yeah, he also defrosted a lobster. A lobster. Hey, give the man credit—he’s got taste.
Intelligence? Mmm, not so much.
During the burglary, Field left behind a hospital bracelet with his name on it, police said. Field returned some time later and was seen peeking into the home.
Police found him wearing Williams’ clothes and the GM’s 2005 World Series ring.
Worst thief ever. Leaving a bracelet with your name on it at the place you just (allegedly) ripped off? Then you get pinched wearing Williams’ clothes and, even worse, the World Series ring? Why not just leave a map to your house at the crime scene and wear a t-shirt that says, “I robbed Kenny Williams’ house and all I got was this lousy t-shirt…and a World Series ring.”
Field has been charged with residential burglary for allegedly unlawfully entering the house and is expected in bond court Tuesday.
