EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (WABC) -- A New York Jets player is looking for the fan who swiped a football right out of his hands.

Defensive back Brian Poole returned an interception 15 yards for a touchdown in the Jets 34-3 victory over the Oakland Raiders Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

As he celebrated his first career touchdown while being mobbed by his teammates, a fan in the front row grabbed the football.

Poole went on Twitter begging to have the ball returned, saying he had a signed jersey for the fan who took it.
