While the New York Giants were across the country beating the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, thieves were breaking into their cars. The team got back to the Timex Performance Center and found several cars were burglarized and one was stolen.

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:

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.
