Decatur, GA (AP) - Police have arrested an 11-year-old boy and
say more juveniles could be arrested in connection with a DeKalb
County burglary where four college football championship rings
belonging to a former Florida State University player were stolen.

The rings belong to Jeff Womble, who played at FSU from 1999 to
2003. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Womble's mother, Avis Williams, returned home Saturday afternoon after visiting relatives for Thanksgiving to find her home ransacked. Her son's name and No. 19 are imprinted on the rings, and she's hoping someone has leads about their whereabouts and will return them.

Williams says she also lost two flat-screen televisions, a laptop and other valuables, but the national championship ring and three others for conference championships hold special value.
