HOUSTON (AP) — Police are investigating a break in at the home of Northeast Ohio native and Texans linebackers coach Mike Vrabel, who says that someone took his three Super Bowl rings he won as a player.

Vrabel tweeted Saturday about the break in at his home in the Houston enclave of Bellaire.

“To all the Houston area pawn shops: 3 super bowl rings are headed your way. Courtesy of the (expletive) who smashed our back door in,” Vrabel tweeted.

Vrabel, in his first season as a coach with the Texans, won the rings when he played for the New England Patriots. Vrabel starred at Walsh Jesuit High School before heading to Ohio State University and the NFL.

Bellaire police said the break in occurred at around 11 a.m. Saturday. No arrests have been made in the case.
