ATLANTA, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Maya Moore's lost Olympic ring turned up as stolen property in Atlanta, when a person was arrested after selling it to a jeweler, a police report says.

Moore, of the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx, received the ring after the United States' gold-medal performance in basketball at the London Olympics, but a package containing the ring was reported missing last fall from her Georgia home, police said.

The ring was sold for $114 to a jeweler in an Atlanta mall, who notified police, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday.

Jamaal Dontray Taylor, 19, of Marietta, Ga., was charged with theft by receiving stolen property, a felony, and theft by deception, a misdemeanor, jail records show.

Moore will likely get her ring returned, the newspaper said.
