A man employed to look after the cars of the Philadelphia Eagles as they played is charged with stealing $225,000 from one player's bank account.

Federal officials said Wednesday that 37-year-old Robert Von Ryan of Philadelphia has been charged with bank fraud.

U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger said Von Ryan went into Eagles guard Todd Herremans' car and took documents containing the player's checking account information, enabling him to transfer more than $225,000 from Herremans' account to his own from 2009 to 2012.

An Eagles spokesman said Herremans was reimbursed by his insurance company. The spokesman said Von Ryan worked for a subcontractor security service that is no longer used by the team.

It wasn't clear whether Von Ryan had hired an attorney.
