Willie Gault's stolen ring recovered
LOS ANGELES -- Police say the stolen 1985 Super Bowl ring of Chicago Bears wide receiver Willie Gault has been recovered from a downtown Los Angeles jewelry store.
Los Angeles police said in a statement Saturday that Gault's ring from the Bears' victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX along with a wedding ring and five stolen watches were found Thursday. The jewelry was stolen in a Nov. 8 home burglary.
Police say 46-year-old store owner Ramin Cohan of Beverly Hills was arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property. He was released Friday after posting $20,000 bail.
Detectives received a tip from a source who said he had seen the ring at the store.
Police also recovered a 1983 Washington Redskins Super Bowl ring, and are looking for the owner.
