Sosa reportedly left bag of money on table
Sosa and his brother, Jose Antonio, had the cash in a plastic bag wrapped inside a towel as they sat talking in the lobby of the Caracas Hilton last Saturday, El Universal said, citing unidentified police sources.
The brothers forgot the bag when they left to eat at a hotel restaurant. Remembering it, they rushed back to the lobby but the cash was gone, the newspaper said.
Hotel management refused to comment on the report Friday. Caracas city police in charge of the district where the hotel is situated said they had no information and could not comment.
El Universal sald Sosa reported the robbery to police and asked hotel management to review hotel security camera videotapes. Management told him the cameras weren't working, the paper said.
The robbery occurred after Sosa attended a Dominican Republic-Puerto Rico Caribbean Series game, El Universal said.
