Roquan Smith has car broken into; items stolen include Bears iPad, Georgia national championship jersey and helmet

Roquan Smith has his 2018 BMW X5 broken into over the weekend in Georgia, and among the items stolen from his car were an iPad belonging to the Bears, jerseys from the Rose Bowl and National Championship, and his regular-season Georgia helmet.

Smith, who the Bears selected No. 8 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, told Athens-Clarke County police he believed the items were stolen between Friday evening and Saturday morning. Smith's car was parked outside The Mark Athens apartment complex just off the University of Georgia campus.

The department's public information officer told Chicago Tribune reporter Phil Thompson that there were no signs of forced entry and that there are no suspects.

In addition to the jerseys, helmet and iPad, two watches, shoes, headphones and a Bluetooth speaker were also taken from the car.

Obviously the watches, shoes and speaker can be replaced but the sentimental value of the jerseys and helmet that Smith wore during an incredible final season with the Bulldogs can not be.
