New Mexico State bus robbed during Florida game
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - University of Florida police say electronics, computers and other items were stolen from a New Mexico State team personnel bus during Saturday's game.
Brad Barber of the university police department says the bus, which carried football staff members, was parked outside the stadium in a secure area.
"Dozens of police cars were parked near the bus, so it seemingly took some gall to enter the bus where it was parked," Barber said.
A second bus, which carried New Mexico State players, wasn't targeted.
Florida beat New Mexico State 61-13 in their season-opening game.
New Mexico State Athletic Director Mario Moccia tweeted his frustration over the matter. "Well it's a first. Our bus was broken into all athletic dept staff and guest bags stolen inside! Not a joke," he wrote.
