Janitor pleads guilty to taking World Series ring
PHILADELPHIA - March 8, 2010 -- A former janitor has admitted stealing a World Series ring left in a restroom at the Phillies' ballpark.Fifty-three-year-old Anthony Mobley pleaded guilty Monday in the theft of the $10,000, diamond-encrusted World Series ring. Authorities say a Phillies marketing executive left the ring in a stadium washroom then discovered it was missing when he went back for it about a half-hour later.
Investigators say surveillance footage led police to Mobley, who took officers to where he'd stashed the ring in a supply closet.
Assistant District Attorney Anthony Nardozzi says the ring had been wedged between the ceiling and a wall.
Mobley's attorney says his client is a good man who made a poor decision.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 2.
