Phillies Fan Arrested for Stealing World Series Rings


mervine_face_500It took them 28 years to win their second championship and it seems the time off has led the Phillies to being very reckless with their championship rings. First there was the team executive who left his ring in a bathroom, now there is a Mensa-like fan who was arrested for allegedly stealing three championship rings from the Phillies’ office.

Matthew Mervine is a 22-year-old rabid Phillies fan who regularly shows up to games wearing a mask and has taken to calling himself “Rockie Killer” while in the stands. During yesterday’s game he was kicked out for being too boisterous and he was taken to a team office before being ejected from the stadium.

In the office he put his mask and rally towel down on a desk, when he picked them up he took an envelope with him as well, inside it were three World Series rings.

While these rings weren’t the $11,000 premier versions, they were ticketed for three team scouts and still check in at a respectable $1,100. In addition to being caught on film taking the envelope, Mervine made it easy for the cops since he also filled out a job application with the team leaving his real name, phone number and address.

He was later arrested at his home and the rings were returned to the team. This is not the first arrest for Mervine who also has carjacking and drug possession on his rap sheet.
