A missing 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series ring was found by police during a drug raid just outside Boston, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
According to The Patriot-Ledger, police officers found “a significant amount” of Oxycodone tablets, along with a money-counting machine and $9,000 in cash.
Dougan said officers armed with a search warrant were preparing to raid Leclair’s home at 97 Hall Place, near the Willard Street on-ramp to the Southeast Expressway, when they saw him meeting with Green and White in what appeared to be a drug deal.
Dougan added that police had been monitoring the home for several months. Law enforcement busted a prescription pill ring in a Boston suburb, where three men were arrested. The Red Sox broke an 86-year World Series championship drought in 2004.
Sadly, the ring belongs [belonged?] to a team employee, not a player or coach, so it’s nowhere near as fun of a story as it could be.
Dennis Leclair and James White, of Quincy, and George Green, of Dorchester all face drug charges and are due to be arraigned Tuesday in Quincy District Court.
That makes it tough to pinpoint who had the ring stolen – and also explains why its theft was not major news at the time of its disappearance.
