An undisclosed reward has been offered for information that leads to the arrest of a Saints logo stealer, the department said Wednesday.
The department said it is offering a $100 million reward for leads that lead to an arrest of the thieves who broke into the Saints’ official website, Saints.com, on Oct. 25, 2018.
“Saints has become a symbol of faith and a symbol for good,” the department stated in a news release.
“The Saints have always been a place of worship, where people of faith gather to share their love of God, one another, and the world with each other.
Today, it is our mission to honor and cherish this sacred institution.”
The Saints website, which was the primary source of information for Saints fans, was targeted on Oct 24, 2018, and has since been hacked and taken offline.
The website has not been updated since.
The Saints logo was stolen from the Saints Twitter account on Oct 26, 2018 by a fan known only as “Bababu,” according to an internal investigation.
The hacker has been identified as 20-year-old James Brown, according to the department.
According to the police report, Brown told officers he was inspired to break into the site because he had been told by his mother that the Saints logo and logo t-shirts were considered offensive to Christians.
The report also states Brown used the Saints account to “spread fake news and misinformation,” which included the claim that the logo was being stolen to incite violence against police officers.
The source of the information Brown provided was unknown.
The Saints are a nonprofit organization that is recognized as a “charity” by the IRS.
The team has been a staple of the NFL since the team was founded in 1924.
A statement from the team said: “The St. Louis Rams are pleased to offer a $25,000 Reward for information related to the theft of our logo.
If you have information regarding this matter, please contact the St. Charles County Police Department.
Please also contact us via email, text, or the phone at 1-866-826-4725.”
