With much anticipation surrounding the second season of 13 Reasons Why, fans are fascinated with just about anything the actors and actresses from the first season are up to. Shockingly, news just broke that Bryan Box, who played the role of football player Jamie Garrison, was arrested on December 29, 2017, on suspicion of stealing and burglarizing from elderly individuals in Marin County, California. He was reportedly charged with nine counts of burglary, possession of stolen property, and theft by a caretaker of an elder. The craziest part about all of this is that it happened months before he was arrested.
Police connected Bryan with six burglaries at several places throughout the Bay Area in the fall after finding out that he had previously worked as a caretaker at the residences. The Marin Independent- Journal is reporting that Bryan visited the homes of former clients, chatted about his new job for 13 Reasons Why, and would steal from them during this time. It was only after he left the residences that the owners realized things were missing.
Bryan had a minor role but appeared in many 13 Reasons Why scenes alongside Ross Butler, who played the role of Zach Dempsey in the series. Bryan's character was also a varsity athlete.
SF Gate is reporting that among the stolen items Bryan allegedly took were jewelry, medications, a laptop, a Social Security card, and checks. It's also being reported that just one of the burglaries amounted to $50,000 worth of stolen goods. Since his arrest, police ordered a search warrant for Bryan's home and found several of the stolen items. He is set to appear in court to answer this charge against him on January 16, 2018. Bryan nor the rest of the 13 Reasons Why cast has yet to make an announcement or statement about the whole thing.
Not only is this shocking, but it's baffling. The fact that Bryan actually worked with these elderly residences at one point in time and they had put their trust in him is truly heartbreaking. They had welcomed him back into their homes after he was no longer working with them anymore. It's horrific to think that even after landing a part on the show and moving up in his career, he decided it was necessary to steal from these innocent people. There's no word on whether or not he will appear in the second season of the series considering his very minor role.
