Stolen World Series ring recovered in Bothell

BOTHELL — A team of burglars has been hitting around Western Washington, and they didn’t skip over Snohomish County.

Some of them probably are from here, in fact.

Philadelphia Phillies player Kyle Kendrick’s home in Mount Vernon was burglarized in late March or early April. Many of h

is personal baseball souvenirs were stolen, including a World Series ring. Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies recovered the World Series ring on Tuesday night in a swampy area in Bothell, sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Hover said.

The ring was handed over to Mount Vernon police, she said. The sheriff’s office is continuing an investigation into possession of stolen property.

A man who is known to law enforcement led deputies to the ring, Hover said. The man had not been arrested as of Wednesday night.

Since the Kendrick burglary, police have arrested or detained six people they think are involved in the burglary ring, Mount Vernon police Lt. Chris Cammock said.

Investigators believe the group has committed burglaries in at least four counties. The burglaries include one in Mukilteo and one in unincorporated Snohomish County. Most of the burglaries were at homes, but some could be at businesses.

They’re still sorting out who was doing the stealing and who was hanging on to stolen property, Cammock said.

Most of Kendrick’s baseball souvenirs have been found, Cammock said.

Mount Vernon police were able to get his family the good news about the World Series ring on Wednesday, just before Kendrick went out to pitch against the Colorado Rockies.

“Recovery of Kendrick’s 2008 World Series ring and his 2009 National League Championship ring are the direct result of the tireless efforts performed by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Directed Patrol Team and the Everett Police Department ACT Team,” Cammock said.

Everett police made the first arrest in the case in April.

They arrested an Arlington man, 33, and they found one of the missing championship rings in his car. He was later arrested and booked into the Snohomish County jail for investigation of possession of stolen property.

The Everett case helped Mount Vernon detectives find more stolen items and a few more suspects last month. They searched an apartment in south Everett and made a couple more arrests after finding more of Kendrick’s baseball souvenirs there.
