ELON, N.C. — Two men were arrested after police said they found stolen Elon University championship rings while searching their mobile home for a drug investigation.

Kionne Ivin McLaughlin, 24, and Scott Russell Beatty, 25, were charged Tuesday after authorities executed a search warrant at 660 Manning Ave., according to Elon police.

Police said two Elon baseball championship rings were found, along with other items reported stolen from a string of break-ins in April.

Police said the search cleared up several open investigations in Elon. The suspects are both affiliated with the “Crips” street gang, according to police.

Investigators said they also found marijuana and evidence that the suspects were manufacturing marijuana. Police said the search came after a six-month drug investigation.

Both suspects face various charges including felony possession of stolen property and possession of marijuana. Both were placed in the Alamance County Jail under $250,000 secured bonds and have court planned for Jan. 8.

    “evidence that the suspects were manufacturing marijuana”…

    Just how does one manufacture marijuana?

    You would have thought they would have sold the rings they stole. Glad this scum is off the streets, if only for a while.

    We need to bring back chain gangs. Make them work and work hard for their entire time in jail. No TV, no off time, just enough food to keep them going and nothing but sleep and work.

        Nope I work with one. I work no set schedule and set my own hours. As long as my work is done I can do it as I please. So when I am done with work I check news, email and such. Don’t you wish you could work the same way. Thanks for asking.
