NCAA championship rings stolen from fmr. Baylor player

HOUSTON - A former Baylor University women's basketball player said her priceless national championship mementos are gone thanks to a greedy thief.

Houston police are investigating the burglary that happened in the 5500 block of South Rice.

Chameka Scott played for the Lady Bears from 2002-2006 and played on the 2005 NCAA National Championship team.

During her career, she was awarded three rings, including a Big 12 Championship ring.

While Scott was away on vacation, police said a burglar broke into her apartment and ransacked her place stealing her rings.

She returned home on Monday.

"My heart kind of sunk, this is the box here, the ring goes here, the watch goes here," said Scott. "It literally stays in here and it wasn't on top of anything it. It was just down under tucked away so once they got a hold of it that's what they were looking for."

Scott is checking every pawn shop hoping she find the rings.

"There are a lot of great athletes that go their whole career and never get a ring so you get tied to the fact that that's the one thing that go beyond than you," said Scott.

Scott said the three rings cost more than $1,200.

Anyone with information about the rings or suspects should call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
