SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. --The parents of Adam Morrison confirmed Tuesday that detectives found their son’s West Coast Conference Championship rings.  The two stolen rings were recovered in early August according to authorities but have not been returned. A third ring is still missing.

A detective originally reported that it was Morrison’s NBA Championship ring that was stolen. Morrison won two NBA Championships while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. However, Morrison’s parents said the rings were actually from the WCC Championship.

The rings were stolen from Morrison’s parents North Spokane house according to authorities. The ring is still in police custody as evidence.

A neighbor called the Morrison's to tell them their garage door was left open and they called police.

Detectives found empty drawers and the family safe was missing from the garage. The Morrison's said there's no sign they were targeted but the suspects likely figured out who lives in their home after entering.

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Spokane Police Department detectives worked together to arrest Chris Remington, Timothy Forslund, and Kevin Heaton for the Morrison break-in. The men are accused of residential burglary according to detectives.

Heaton was arrested earlier this month for a weapons charge in connection to a deadly shooting in 2012.

Authorities said they believe the men are responsible for a rash of recent burglaries including one at the Morrison house. The suspects are accused of taking more than $50,000 cash from an elderly couple.

Morrison recently return to the Spokane area to join the Gonzaga University coaching staff as a student assistant.
