Police hope video leads to suspects in spring theft of Colts memorabilia

Zionsville — Police believe a convenience store surveillance video may be the break they need to solve the theft of Colts memorabilia, including a Super Bowl ring valued between $10,000 and $12,000, from a rural Boone County home.

The ring was one of dozens of items of Colts-related items taken from the home of Troy Glendenning on April 18 and April 20, said Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Pell. Glendenning has been employed by the Colts for 20 years, Pell said.

The thieves apparently were motivated to return because they saw so much material in the first break-in, Pell speculated.

Also taken were autographed game footballs, photos and Peyton Manning memorabilia, Pell said.

Autographed Manning jerseys are offered on eBay for $300 to $960 or more, depending on condition, whether there is a “certificate of authenticity,” or if other items are included. Imitation Super Bowl rings sell for $34.95 to $400, depending on the quality of the material.

The value of the items is incalculable, however, since Glendenning would never have sold them, Pell said.

The thieves also took thousands of comic books from the 1950s and 1960s.
