According to NBC New York, the cars were inside an iron fence covered by a security camera. The cars were not locked, and the stolen vehicle was a 1996 Chevrolet Caprice. Though police didn't identify which players were affected, offensive lineman James Brewer tweeted his disappointment:
Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud..geez get your life right in 2012

Two notes here:
1. Players, why aren't you locking your car doors? Yes, it's a crime to steal something whether the doors are locked or not, but pressing a button to lock a door is a bit of crime prevention that takes about a half a second. It also prevents teammates from playing pranks on your car.
2. If I knew 1996 Chevy Caprices were so popular, I would have held on to my grandmother's 1986 Chevy Celebrity and made a mint.
