Man steals - then returns - 3 Franklin High football jerseys honoring deceased players

FRANKLIN — When a local man stole three Franklin High football jerseys, he said he did not realize the significant meaning that each jersey held.

Robert Nadeau, 39, stole three Franklin High football jerseys, other articles of clothing, and some food from tables near a football game, the Union Leader reported. Police were able to identify him and requested that he returned the football jerseys - he agreed.

The jerseys belonged to three players who had died in recent years. One of these former players was Army Cpt. Scott Dimond, 39, who died in an ambush on Oct. 13, 2008 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. He was also a retired city police sergeant when he died, serving 18 years as a police officer.

Nadeau has not been arrested, but could still face theft charges.
