(AP)Drug Enforcement Administration officials arrested six members of a drug trafficking ring on Monday. In their bust, they turned up heroin, cash, weapons, and a Super Bowl XLV ring stolen from a Green Bay Packers' team executive.

The defendants, all from the Chicago area, have been under surveillance for months, but it remains unclear how one of them ended up with the Super Bowl ring. The Packers won Super Bowl XLV over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the team received its rings in June of 2011.
Last week, another ring from Super Bowl XLV was in the news. A Packers' employee pawned her ring, which was bought by a 71-year-old Wisconsin man who called himself a lifelong Packers fan.
