A source close to Ware told CBS4 the crime happened at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Monday night while the Broncos were playing the Houston Texans in Denver. Men entered Ware’s Cherry Creek apartment and stole a safe and Ware’s customized Super Bowl 50 championship ring.

Police said Wednesday afternoon in a tweet that the stolen items were recovered.

A hidden camera in the apartment had captured images of the suspects, who police said entered the home through the front door “by unknown means.” The pictures showed a mustached man in a collared shirt and another man in a red shirt. Both were wearing gloves.

So far, police haven’t released identities of the suspects.

In June, Ware posted photos on Twitter showing him posing with his ring, which is customized with his name on the side. The ring has 194 diamonds, totals 5.05 carats and is estimated to have cost upwards of $36,000.
