LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The LAPD Tuesday was working to obtain a search warrant in an effort to help recover O.J. Simpson’s Heisman trophy and No. 32 jersey that were both stolen from USC’s Heritage Hall in 1994.
The theft case had gone cold until November when a man called the university in an alleged effort to authenticate the trophy. He told USC officials that he had bought the Heisman from a friend, according to TMZ.com.
LAPD detectives said the warrant will be used to track down the man through his phone records.
Simpson won college football’s top award in 1968 when he played running back for USC.
