Blog Photo - NY Giants robbed while they were beating the 49ersThe New York Giants were masters of the take-away in this weekend's 26-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, intercepting 49ers quarterback Alex Smith three times. When they returned back home to New Jersey, though, they found they were on the wrong end of several more take-aways and turnovers. While the Giants were in San Francisco, someone broke into several of their cars, took plenty of stolen loot, and stole one of the Giants' automobiles.

The cars were burglarized near the parking lot of MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands, while supposedly being watched by hired security. That's got to give you second thoughts about parking at home games, eh Jets and Giants fans?

The New York Daily News reports that the Giants cars were broken into and burglarized early Sunday morning, hours before the Giants kicked off against the 49ers. Five vehicles were busted into and robbed, while a sixth vehicle was flat-out stolen -- a 1996 Chevy Caprice belonging to Giants defensive tackle Marvin Austin, according to NBC New York.

The names of the other players whose cars were broken into have not been released by police. But we know who one of them is, because he took to Twitter to admonish New Jerseyans for their allegedly car-thieving ways. "Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud," Giants offensive tackle James Brewer tweeted. "Geez get your life right."

The tweet has since been deleted. This is ironic, because recently Brewer tweeted, "Gotta be more active on Twitter."

The MetLife Sports Complex is also home to the Izod Center concert facility and the Meadowlands racetrack. The Timex Perfomance Center parking lot is protected by security cameras and an iron gate.

Memo to Timex Perfomance Center security staff -- how do you let a thief drive a stolen car through a locked gate?

Are you near tears with sympathy for these wronged New York Giants? Dry your eyes.  NBC New York also reports that the vehicles stolen or broken into has all been left unlocked.
