Former Mets clubhouse manager arrested in theft

  •  

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City prosecutors say former Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels has been arrested on charges of criminal possession of stolen property and fraud after a lengthy investigation into stolen sports memorabilia that included a team-autographed 1986 World Series warm-up jersey.

Samuels was fired from the team in November. Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said he took more than $2.3 million worth of equipment over the years and had planned to keep it as part of his personal collection until his retirement.

Samuels served as the team's clubhouse manager for 27 seasons and also worked as equipment manager and travelling secretary.

A call to the Mets was not immediately returned. Samuels was awaiting arraignment, and his attorney wasn't immediately available for comment.
