It didn’t take long to find the guy that stole Saints special teamer Stanley Arnoux’s Super Bowl ring.
We passed along word that Arnoux reported his ring stolen in late May. WSVN reports that a Gil Ulloa, a valet manager at the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami, was arrested recently for the theft after he sold he ring to a pawn shop.
Ulloa gave himself away when he returned to the pawn shop a few days after selling it for $1,200 to a pawn shop. He’s being charged with grand theft.
“A couple days later, he came back to the store and he asked what we were going to do with the ring. I found that odd. I found that very odd,” the shop’s owner Alberto Iturrey said.
Iturrey contact Arnoux to return the ring via Twitter. (See, Twitter is useful!)
“His eyes watered when I gave him back the ring,” said Iturrey. “He told me, his exact words were, “‘Man, I feel like I am receiving it again for the first time.’”
