Phoenix police investigating $100K theft from Super Bowl Experience
Theft reported at 5 pm Saturday from an area blocked off to motorists
Phoenix police are investigating after $100,000 worth of property was stolen from the Super Bowl Experience at the downtown convention center on Saturday.
The theft was reported around 5 p.m. Feb. 4 from an area blocked off to motorists for the event.
Police have not provided many details about what was taken, rather referring to it as "production property" from a third-party vendor parked at the event, FOX 10 reports.
Attendees of the NFL's biggest fan event in the week leading up to the Super Bowl said the theft is not the message Arizonans want to send to people visiting the Grand Canyon State for the big game.
