Nate Solder Gets Back $10,000 Stolen Ring

Expensive Ring of Nate Solder Recovered

On April 29, New England Patriots’ tackle Nate Solder noticed that his wife’s $10,000 ring went missing.

Solder, 26, was drafted by the Pats out of the University of Colorado in the 2011 NFL Draft, New England’s first-round pick that year. Once Matt Light retired at the end of the ’11 season, Solder took over the important task of protecting Tom Brady’s blindside as left tackle.

After a short investigation, police now have discovered the culprit, a construction man named Manuel P. Faria, who worked on Solder’s property and pawned the piece of jewelry for only $150.

It was Faria’s foreman that helped track him down, noticing his nervousness following the job and seeing him gone for extended periods of time. The Fall River man dropped the ring off at a shop in his town. He is now being held at $1,000 cash bail with impending larceny charges.
