Campanis' World Series Ring Recovered

The man suspected of stealing former Dodger Jimmy Campanis' 1988 World Series championship ring and committing thefts at other area golf courses was in custody Thursday, and the ring was recovered, police said.

Frank Carrillo, 40, was arrested on Wednesday, and booked at the La Verne police station on suspicion of grand theft and possession of stolen property, according to the La Verne Police Department. He was held on $40,000 bail.

Carrillo is suspected of multiple thefts at the Sierra la Verne Country Club during September and October, according to the Whittier Daily News.

He also had an outstanding warrant from the Upland Police Department for thefts from the Upland Hills Golf Course, the newspaper reported.

Campanis reported that his World Series ring was stolen from a golf bag on Monday in Chino Hills while he was participating in a charity golf event.

Police recovered the ring while serving a warrant at an Azusa house, the newspaper reported.

Campanis, whose father was the late Dodgers general manager Al Campanis, made brief appearances for the Dodgers from 1966 to 1968 before being traded.
