Tough start to this Wednesday for wide receiver Chad Ochocinco who was a victim of a theft this morning.

According to his posts on Twitter, someone broke into his Escalade rental by smashing the window, stealing his Gold Starbucks cards and his Ipod - which didn't make him too happy.

To make matters worse, he also left his wallet in the console, which apparently had his driver's license and all of his credit cards in it.

The receiver went on to say there were no OTA's on Wednesday, and the tough part is he can't even take his anger out by working out since the players apparently aren't allowed to lift weights.   In the meantime he said in a video he just posted that he plans on spending the rest of the day studying.

Here's a video with his reaction after what happened.

UPDATE: Ochocinco's wallet was returned after being found in a parking lot, with his license and credit cards reportedly all intact. His Starbucks card wasn't, but they've apparently agreed to replace his card after hearing how upset he was over losing it.

You have to love the power of Twitter, which helped make this one turn into a fairly happy ending for the Patriots receiver.
