Police: Worker Took $10,000 Ring From Patriots Lineman Solder’s Home

FALL RIVER, Mass. — Authorities say a Fall River man working at the home of New England Patriots player Nate Solder stole a $10,000 Tiffany diamond ring belonging to the player’s girlfriend and pawned it for $150.

The Herald News reports that Manuel Faria was ordered to be held on $1,000 bail after pleading not guilty to larceny at his arraignment.

Authorities say the 24-year-old Faria worked for a contractor doing renovation work at Solder’s Foxborough home in April.

Solder and his girlfriend left for a while, leaving the contractors inside. When they returned, the ring was gone.

The construction crew’s foreman tracked the ring down to a Fall River pawn shop, and told police. A receipt showed Faria had pawned the ring for $150 cash.

It was unclear of Faria had a lawyer.
