Update: KMTR in Eugene is reporting that Jeremiah Masoli and Garrett Embry are not considered suspects in the theft case, even though their names were mentioned in the police report.
Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, right, and receiver Garrett Embry are named in a police report involving an alleged theft from a fraternity house early Sunday, according to the Oregonian.
The newspaper reported that four Eugene police officers responded to a reported theft of two MacBook Pro computers — one valued at $2,000, the other at $1,500 — and a $900 guitar from the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house at 12:48 a.m. Sunday.
Fraternity member Max Wolfard, who filed the report, identified the players.
"The minute I stepped on the staircase I said to myself, 'Wow, Masoli and Embry are in our house right now,' " Wolfard told the Oregonian. "Masoli has a very distinctive face, very distinctive facial hair — not to mention I see him on TV all the time."
Wolfard said he had seen the players at the house before, but when they started to act "suspicious," he demanded to know what they were doing. Wolfard then noticed Embry was carrying what appeared to be Wolfard's digital projector, valued at $560.
Wolfard said the players then ran out the back door. Wolfard chased after Embry, who eventually stopped running and gave him back his projector. Wolfard told Embry, "You've got it back, now you better get out of here."
When Wolfard returned to his room, he found his computer and guitar missing. Fellow fraternity member Max Iantorno returned soon afterward to find his laptop missing.
