Five people have been arrested in a burglary spree that involved the theft of Kyle Kendrick's World Series ring.

Police in Washington State were informed of a burglary at Kyle Kendrick's home on April 4th.

Among the items stolen were his 2008 World Series Championship ring, a 2009 National League Championship ring and pennant, several signed jerseys from professional players like Ken Griffey Jr., John Smoltz, Tim Hudson, and Nolan Ryan. Personal items like clothing, household appliances, televisions and home entertainment equipment were also missing.

On April 12th, police stopped a 33-year-old man and located the 2009 National League Championship ring in his vehicle. He was arrested for possessing stolen property.

The next day, Washington police obtained a search warrant for a home where they recovered clothing, household appliances and several baseballs including Kendrick's first homerun ball.

They also recovered property from a burglary that occurred approximately a mile from Kendrick's Washington residence.

A stolen car was also recovered.

A 37-year-old woman was taken into custody for possession of stolen property and a warrant was issued for a 36-year-old man who also resided at the residence.

On April 18th, police located the man and arrested him for possession of stolen property.

The following day, police executed another search warrant of an apartment where they took a 25-year-old female and 33-year-old male into custody for investigation of possession of stolen property, burglary and trafficking stolen property.

In the apartment, police recovered additional items from Kendrick's home including several hats he wore as a player. Additional property from the other burglary was recovered and investigators found items that appear to be linked to burglary victims in other parts of Washington.

The World Series ring is still missing along with several baseball gloves that were significant at points in Kendrick's career and several baseballs signed by all the 2008 World Series Phillies players.

Washington police are continuing to investigate.
