BOCA RATON, Fla., July 20 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a Ted Williams-autographed baseball stolen from an 81-year-old fan's home has been recovered and a suspect turned himself in to officers.

Boca Raton police said Shane Cashman, 25, turned himself in after investigators discovered he had visited pawn shops all across Palm Beach County to sell items belonging to Bill Breede, including the ball signed by Williams, the Boston Red Sox great, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

Police said a pawn broker bought the ball from Cashman for $80.

Investigators said they also determined Cashman had used Breede's credit cards at three stores following the July 6 break-in at the octogenarian's home.
