QUINCY, Mass. — Police conducting a raid at a suspected drug dealer’s home south of Boston made an unusual discovery — a stolen 2004 Red Sox World Series ring.

Quincy police had been watching the home for several months, and on Tuesday they executed a search warrant after witnessing a drug deal.

Capt. John Dougan says they found a “significant” number of oxycodone pills, money-counting machines, police scanners, $9,000 in cash and the ring.

Dougan says the ring belongs to a team employee, not a player or coach. The Red Sox broke an 86-year World Series championship drought in 2004.

The man who lives in the home and two men to whom he allegedly sold pills are expected in court Wednesday.

Dougan says it’s unclear how the ring ended up in the home.
