New York Mets: Former Clubhouse Manager Indicted on Multiple Charges
New York Mets Clubhouse Manager Pleads Not Guilty to Criminal Possession and Embezzlement Charges
Former New York Mets clubhouse manager, Charlie Samuels was reportedly indicted on charges that he criminally possessed nearly $2.3 million worth of game-used memorabilia that was property of the Mets organization, per ESPN New York.
ESPN reports that that the former Mets employee of 27 years faces a 21-count indictment and could spend 8 1/3 to 25 years in prison for stockpiling signed and unsigned equipment that he planned to sell one day.
"This is a case of the equipment manager leading the National League in steals," New York City police commissioner Raymond Kelly said in a statement via ESPN.
Although Samuels' attorney contends that his client did no wrong and had every legal right to posses those items, the evidence against Samuels is pretty overwhelming.
With Mets' ownership struggling with finances and their team at the basement of the NL East, this is just another major blow to the organization.
