When it rains, it pours. That mantra is true for the Chicago Bears. A disappointing 0-2 start coupled with Halas Hall chaos this week has made Bears fans tizzy. As if it could be worse, it turns out the Bears were a victim of a crime this week.

According to ABC 7 News in Chicago, the team hopes to find equipment they say was stolen earlier in the week at Soldier Field.

ABC 7 wrote, “A Soldier Field manager said someone stole equipment, including gators and lawn mowers, from a parking structure at the NFL stadium.” The report says the incident occurred sometime Wednesday overnight and that the loss is estimated to be over $100,000.

“The thieves tore down a security fence to drive the equipment out of the garage,” staff told the network.

Last year, the NFL investigated a similar incident that took place at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. A vandal broke into the stadium, commandeered a tractor, and rode it all over the field, tearing it up and vandalizing it. The suspect was later caught.

If you think things can’t get much worse, remember that the Bears play the reigning Super Bowl Champions this weekend. Chicago travels to Kansas City to play the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff will be at 4:25 p.m. Eastern on Fox.

The NFL world reacted to the brutal Bears news.
