In late July, new Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost's house was burglarized. He had tens of thousands of dollars of merchandise lifted from his Lincoln home.

The burglars went through the garage and took numerous items from the home—primarily paraphernalia from Frost's coaching career, including Oregon and UCF items.

From a previous Lincoln Journal Star report:

They entered the unlocked garage at Frost’s home near 27th Street and Pine Lake Road through the side door sometime between Friday at 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, Capt. Jeri Roeder said.

The thieves took two Nebraska championship rings, 10 Oregon championship rings, two Central Florida championship rings, five pairs of Air Jordan shoes from Frost’s tenure at Oregon and a gaming console, Roeder said.

Frost was still doing inventory on the items taken so the total loss may be higher, she said.

The Frost family wound up locating the rings, which had not been stolen. However, there was still around $50,000 of merchandise taken.

Now, we know more about at least one of the suspected burglars.

According to a new Lincoln Journal Star report, a 17-year old girl has been arrested for stealing from Scott Frost's home:

Lincoln police have arrested a 17-year-old girl who was found with an Oregon Ducks shoe believed to have been stolen from Nebraska football coach Scott Frost's home last month.

Police say more arrests could follow.

About $50,000 worth of shoes, football helmets and artwork was taken in the July 29 burglary. Frost initially believed 14 championship rings were taken but those were later found. No one was home at the time.

According to the report, some of the shoes taken were listed for sale online, which led to a number of tips. It is unclear exactly how the 17-year old alleged thief was caught, however, or if she acted alone.
