An Ohio State sophomore on the men’s volleyball team said someone stole his conference tournament ring after he held a party at his East 15th Avenue home early Saturday morning, but sources said the ring was later discovered.
According to police reports, someone entered the sophomore’s unlocked bedroom between 1:30 and 3:15 a.m. Saturday and stole $1,440 in property. Stolen items include a laptop computer, cell phone and the student’s ring he received last season after the Buckeyes won the conference title. The ring is valued at $200.
Sources said the ring and cell phone were later discovered in the student’s home, but the computer is still missing.
The student said there were people at the party that he did not know, but police did not list a suspect in the theft.
