Maya Moore’s Olympic Ring Stolen And Sold

by Categorized: Maya Moore, Minnesota Lynx, UConn women's basketball, USA Basketball, WNBA Date:

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Miss Maya’s Olympic gold medal ring, reported stolen from her home in Georgia last year, was sold at a Gold Rush jeweler for $144.

According to the AJC, Jamaal Dontray Taylor, 19, even showed the jeweler his identification when he sold the ring in November. A package that was supposed to contain her ring was reported missing last fall from her Cobb County home, according to police.

The ring likely will be returned to the basketball star. The jeweler called police who arrested Taylor on Dec. 14, according to Cobb County jail records.

Taylor was charged with theft by receiving stolen property, a felony, and theft by deception, a misdemeanor, jail records show.
