Bo Levi Mitchell Has Grey Cup Ring Stolen
Calgary police are asking the public to keep an eye out after Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell’s 2018 Grey Cup and Most Outstanding Player rings were stolen from a truck.
The truck had been parked in a lot in the 3500 block of 8th Avenue N.E. on Jan. 2 when the rings were stolen, according to police.
Police say they were able to identify a suspect using CCTV images from Calgary Transit, but the rings were not recovered when the suspect was arrested.
Charges are pending against the suspect.
Investigators are asking the public, especially collectors, buyers and sellers of sports memorabilia, to be on the lookout for the rings.
“Given the uniqueness of these rings, it is highly likely that someone in our community knows where they are or will come across them,” Cst. Sean Lynn said in a statement.
“These rings represent more than just a piece of jewelry, they represent significant accomplishments and we would all like to see them returned to the rightful owner.”
Mitchell, 29, has played eight seasons with the Stampeders, including the past six as the team’s full-time starting quarterback.
He led the Stampeders to a Grey Cup championship in 2018, also winning the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award that season.
He won his first Grey Cup ring in 2014 with the Stampeders.
