PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police have recovered a Philadelphia Phillies World Series ring that went missing at the ballpark.

A Phillies marketing executive says he removed the $15,000 ring in a restroom at Citizens Bank Park on Monday, when the team was off. He returned a half-hour later, and it was gone.

Police Capt. Laurence Nodiff (NOH'-dif) said Wednesday surveillance tapes led them to a janitor, who took officers to the ring. Nodiff says the ring was found wrapped in a paper towel and stashed in a supply closet.

Police say charges are expected against the janitor, who works for a subcontractor. They say he may have hidden the ring because he had second thoughts about taking it home.

The ring has 103 diamonds and commemorates the team's 2008 world
title against Tampa Bay.
