Teen accused of stealing Payton HOF, Super Bowl rings

AURORA, Ill. -- Theft charges have been filed against an 18-year-old accused of stealing a replica Super Bowl ring and a Hall of Fame ring that belonged to late Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton.

Jeremy J. Sherman was being held in the Kane County Correctional Center in Geneva on unrelated charges when he was charged with two counts of theft in connection with the stolen rings, police said.

The rings were stolen March 27 from a display case at Walter Payton's Roundhouse Complex in downtown Aurora. They were later recovered by police from a pawnshop, where they were sold by two men.

The rings were valued at $4,100 but were sold for only $165.
