"To all the Houston area pawn shops: 3 super bowl rings are headed your way," Vrabel tweeted Saturday. "Courtesy of the mother f****** who smashed our back door in."
Vrabel, in his first season as a coach with the Texans, won the rings after the 2001-02, 2003-04 and 2004-05 seasons when he played for the New England Patriots, ESPN noted.
Bellaire, Texas, police said the break in occurred around 11 a.m. Saturday. No arrests have been made.
Vrabel made headlines for another police matter three years ago — his arrest on charges of theft from an Indiana riverboat casino.
Pro Football Weekly reported that the alleged theft was in connection to eight bottles of beer that weren't paid for. The Switzerland County sheriff’s department said Vrabel was released about on $600 cash bond after his class D felony charge.
“It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication,” Vrabel said in a statement at the time. “I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter.”
