Authorities say they have found 27 New York Giants NFL Super Bowl rings, valued at more than $170,000, stolen last June from a Massachusetts jewelry manufacturer. The Essex District Attorney's office said investigators found the rings on Tuesday in a bank safe deposit box in the town of Saugus. Prosecutors said 22-year-old Kristen Sullivan, who allegedly rented the box, was being held on a charge of receiving stolen property and would be arraigned on Wednesday.
Sullivan was one of three people arrested on Friday in the $2 million robbery of jjewelry manufacturer EA Dion Inc in Attleboro. She had been freed on her own recognizance after pleading not guilty earlier on Tuesday to a previous charge of receiving stolen property. It wasn't immediately known if she has an attorney. Sean Murphy of Lynn pleaded not guilty Monday to receiving stolen property and was ordered held on $250,000 bail. According to court documents, police found one of the stolen Super Bowl rings in the 44-year-old Murphy's bedroom, jewelry in his car, and rare coins in a bank safe deposit box. Murphy's lawyer says his client looks forward to his day in court.
