  • Chicago Bears' first round draft pick Roquan Smith

Smith's jerseys from the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game, The 2018 Rose Bowl and the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl were among the items recovered, according to Summerville police detective Ty Hutchins.

The perpetrator is allegedly a teenager and student at the University of Georgia, whose name hasn't been released, and the items were recovered in Chattooga County, which is about a three-hour drive from Athens. Police found some of the stolen property at the suspect's home.

Roquan Smith should be in the process of moving from Georgia to the Windy City, so maybe that's the explanation for having so many valuables in one's auto.

The eighth-overall pick had hundreds of thousands of dollars of memorabilia and electronics stolen out of his vehicle on Saturday, and police recovered numerous items and identified the suspect.

Roquan Smith posted a video on Twitter, thanking the officers for their efforts in catching the criminal. "I would just like to thank you guys so much".

The Bears rookie on Wednesday took to Twitter to thank authorities for their efforts in retrieving everything that was taken from his vehicle with the exception of his team-issued iPad, which had been "immediately wiped" remotely of all content.

According to published reports, police expected to obtain an arrest warrant for the teenage suspect soon, and planned to charge him with a felony in connection with the theft.
