A Fowler High School graduate has her class ring back two years after her Fresno home was burglarized.
Madera County Sheriff’s Detective Adam McEwen returned the ring to her five days after it was seized during an arrest in Madera.
On September 17, 22-year old Regla Maria Salomon of Madera, was arrested on a $10,000 felony warrant, and was wearing the stolen ring when taken into custody. She told officers someone gave it to her.
Deputies seized it and placed it into evidence. McEwen was assigned to find the rightful owner. It was a 2007 class ring that bore a soccer crest and a woman’s first name.
There were two possible victims – both having the same first name … both soccer players at Fowler High. The first woman was located in Kingsburg and yes, she played soccer, and yes, she had a ring... but no, it wasn’t hers.
So McEwen went searching for the second possible victim -- leading him to a home in Fresno.
He called and left a messaging, receiving a call back back from the woman who described her class ring in detail.
She reported it stolen April 4, 2010.
Yesterday, Detective McEwen drove to her house to personally deliver it. How the stolen ring made its way to Madera remains a mystery for now. As for the owner, she says she’s just grateful to get it back.
