Posted by James R. Gagliano in News | The LA Rams logo and logo for their Los Angeles Rams football team have been stolen in a home invasion and were used in a video made by a person with a criminal background.
The Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes Division and FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office launched an investigation to determine whether the stolen logo was a “legitimate” logo or an “improperly obtained” logo, according to a statement released Thursday.
Los Angeles Police said it was notified by the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office that the Rams’ logo and a Los Angeles City Council logo were stolen at a home on March 23.
The logo and the council logo were used on a YouTube video made March 25 that featured the NFL logo.
The stolen logo is not believed to be associated with the Rams, according the LAPD.
The team said the stolen emblem is a tribute to the LA Raiders owner, Mark Davis, who died on April 14.
Davis’ death led to protests in Oakland, which were sparked by police brutality.
