By Jennifer Bauer - Reporter

HOUSTON - Houston police are looking for the person who smashed out a window and stole a bag of cash from the front seat of a car belonging to a former Houston Texan.

Investigators told Local 2 the car belonged to Ed Reed, who spent part of last season with the Texans.

Sources say the bag contained $50,000. Reed had gotten the money from a bank down the street and then stopped off at the Bank of America in the 12000 block of Westheimer near the Westpark Tollway.

Police believe Reed was followed. 

There is no word on what Reed was doing in Houston. The football star played for the Texans from March until November of last year before being released. He then went on to play for the New York Jets.
