Florida police investigating theft of A-Rod Biogenesis documents


Documents concerning Alex Rodriguez's alleged PED usage were stolen in Florida back in March.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A Florida police department says it has reopened an investigation into the theft of documents related to baseball's inquiry into whether Alex Rodriguez used performance enhancing drugs.

Boca Raton police officer Sandra Boonenberg said Monday the investigation was reopened several weeks ago based on new information stemming from Rodriguez's lawsuit against Major League Baseball.

Boonenberg offered few details on the open investigation but said detectives have "a lot of leads that they're pursuing."

The documents were stolen in March from the car of Porter Fischer, who took them from Biogenesis, the Miami clinic where he worked. The clinic and its owner, Tony Bosch, reportedly provided drugs to Rodriguez and other major league players. Bosch is now cooperating with baseball's investigators.
