Police in Mount Vernon have recovered Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick’s 2008 World Series ring.
Police say burglars broke into his home on March 30 or April 1 and stole the ring along with other memorabilia and personal property. The house was unoccupied and was up for sale, Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock said.
The ring was found Tuesday night in a swampy area near Bothell by Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies, who called Mount Vernon police Wednesday.
Everett police earlier recovered Kendrick’s 2009 NL championship ring in the vehicle of a 33-year-old Arlington man, who they arrested.
