Pennsylvania residents Trammel Bledsoe and Phillip Sainsbury are not exactly model citizens. In fact, they’re bank robbers (though they aren’t related to Deidra Lane) who are currently in prison after getting busted by the cops. They also happen to be sports fans, and have found a fun new way to use sports knowledge to help commit crimes.
While Bledsoe is in prison he knows his telephone calls are being recorded. So when he called his friend Joshua Burton to give him instructions on where to find the gun he ditched and the $3,500 he stole from the bank, he had to come up with some kind of code to let Burton know where to find the loot. So he used athletes and their jersey numbers to give locations.
