KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) - Two Jefferson County men are accused of burglarizing the home of a St. Louis Rams coach.
James Bright and Jeffery Medcalf are both charged with one count of theft stealing and two counts of burglary in the second degree. Additionally, Bright is charged with one count of burglary in the first degree.
Kirkwood Police say the men broke into coach Rob Boras' home in Kirkwood on New Year's Eve and took several rings, including an NFC Championship ring and a Big 12 Championship ring.
In all, police say that they stole more than $28,000 in electronics and jewelry from the home. Police say the items have been partially returned.
NewsChannel 5 learned that two of the stolen rings were sold to the Fenton based company 'Missouri Gold Buyers'.
A few days later, they were melted for scrap.
In Fenton, gold sellers have to hold product for 48 hours before taking action.
The owner, Michael Duke, says he waited well beyond that. Duke says his employees took records from the seller and have handed that over to police.
A representative from the St. Louis Rams tells NewsChannel 5 that Boras and his wife are hoping to put the incident behind them.
