A plaque honoring Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo and an autographed photo of Cowboys’ Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin were in the 2007 Pontiac G6 that was reported stolen on January 24. Their combined value is estimated at $400.

Toms River police say that the owner reported it stolen from the driveway of his house on  200 block of Hamilton Avenue.

The car found engulfed in flames at about 1 AM today on Pine Acres Boulevard in Lakewood matches the description of the stolen vehicle, police said. The memorabilia items are still missing.
