NEW: Miami Heat championship ring stolen; three arrested in Boca

Three Broward County men were arrested this week after they were found with a Ziploc bag full of jewelry, including a 2012 Miami Heat NBA championship ring, according to Boca Raton police.

Jerry Simon, 23, Jaheim Richardson 22, and Kareem Auguste, 22, face charges ranging from burglary and grand theft to possession of drugs. All were being held Friday at the Palm Beach County Jail.

On Tuesday, police saw a vehicle going in and out of the Lakewood Oaks and Colonnade neighborhoods near St. Andrews Boulevard and going through stop signs. An officer decided to pull the car over and immediately smelled marijuana, according to a police report. As police searched the car, they found a baggie full of jewelry in the glove compartment, a pill bottle with Alprazolam, a screwdriver and the Miami Heat Championship ring.

Auguste told police the ring belonged to him and that the other jewelry was his sister’s. Richardson told police he had no idea about the other jewelry, but the championship ring belonged to him. When the officer confronted him about Auguste claiming it was his, he said he’d have to take it. Auguse asked the officer if he could “just give it back to him” instead, the officer wrote. Police later noticed a name on the ring and was able to track down the owner.

At the woman’s home, the lock of a sliding glass door had been knocked out to gain entrance to the residence, according to the report.

In a Facebook post, Boca Raton Police Chief Dan Alexander said the trio from Broward County were roaming city neighborhoods in a rented vehicle.
