CATALINA FOOTHILLS, Arizona (WOIO) - Cleveland Indians skipper Terry Francona lost a pair of prized possessions, and more than $245,000, when his house was robbed this year.
The details of the case were released to the public on Tuesday.
Pima County sheriff’s deputies arrived at Francona’s home--located in Catalina Foothills, Ariz.--on Nov. 7, and learned his 2004 and 2007 World Series rings, valued at $80,000 apiece, were stolen.
The rings were sold, and later recovered, from a sports memorabilia store in Phoenix.
Detectives also discovered a check in the amount of $245,830 was taken and fraudulently deposited in an account earlier this year.
“I am incredibly grateful to the effort that the Pima County Sheriff’s Department has put forth in this,” Francona said in a prepared statement. “Beyond that I can’t comment because it’s an open investigation.”
Authorities didn’t say if either a suspect was in custody, or if there were any persons of interest.
The investigation is ongoing, and more information will be released as it is available.
