Reports suggest that two Chicago Blackhawks players had their cars stolen from the valley while having dinner downtown last month. TMZ Sports reports that Caleb Jones and Connor Murphy are the victims of the robbery who were at the Little Goat restaurant, blocks away from the United Centre.
Jones’ 2021 Jeep Trackhawk and Murphy’s 2017 Porsche Panamera were stolen in the valet robbery. A new Panamera costs over $100,000, while a Trackhawk runs more than $90,000. Fortunately, both the cars have been located. While the Trackhawk was found abandoned in the Pilsen neighbourhood around 9:15 p.m the same evening, police used a license plate reader to locate the Porsche on the back of a tow truck in Bronzeville.
