The Daily Mail obtained the security video of Ryan Lochte and the other US Swimmers were were allegedly robbed the other night in Rio: the same video the judge used to say they appeared nonchalant when he ordered them seized and their passports taken. What stood out for me watching the video is that, consistent with just being robbed, they men did not have wallets. While Lochte’s story has changed some in the details, he repeatedly stated that their wallets were stolen, but not their credentials. You can see credentials and cell phones, but not wallets of the four Olympians as they pass through security.
Lochte told his father when he landed he was going to have to purchase another wallet for the one that was stolen. The Daily Mail thinks they could be wallets, but they are not, or it was a wallet that wasn’t stolen. Lochte definitely doesn’t have a wallet. Also, one of the swimmers still had some money for the cab they got home- having a wallet wouldn’t mean they weren’t robbed. Free the swimmers!
