Todd Herremans, the Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle, had more than $225,000 stolen from his bank account between 2009 and 2012 by a parking-lot attendant in charge of the player's cars while his team stayed at a hotel.
On Tuesday the 37-year-old attendant, Robert Von Ryan, was charged with bank fraud.

The theft reportedly began in 2009 after Ryan discovered a document in Herremans' vehicle that contained the player's bank account and routing numbers, Philly.com reported
Ryan allegedly transferred funds from Herremans' bank account to his account over the past four years, unbeknownst to the football player until recently, U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger told Philly.com.
All $225,034.52 stolen from Herremans has been returned to the player, who has been with the NFL for nine years.
Herremans spoke to ABC's Action 6 News
in Philadelphia about the theft Wednesday night.
"Disappointed in myself, upset that someone would do that before you have to keep your personal information locked up," Herremans said.
When asked how he was not aware that money was being transferred out of his account for that long a period of time, Herremans replied, "It was a combination of just unexplained expenses that I was talking to my financial adviser about and then he started asking me about purchases and stuff."
If convicted, Ryan could receive a $1 million fine and up to 30 months in prison.
