Portland Timbers championship ring stolen from Bethany home

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) --- A man says his Portland Timbers championship ring valued at $2,000 was stolen from his home in Bethany.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says the 2015 championship ring was stolen sometime within the past two months. The man -- Maurice Amar -- used to work for the Portland Timbers soccer club as the player relations manager.

According to Amar, it was stolen sometime during the holidays while they were having a holiday get together.

"That's the really heartbreaking part about it, it's somebody I know," Amar said. "There's no breaking. There's nothing else missing -- it's just the ring."

The ring is silver in color and has "MLS 2015 Champions" and the Timbers logo on the front. One side has the word "Amar" on it and the other side reads "Portland Timbers." 

While the ring was worth a couple thousand dollars, it also had sentimental value that reminded Amar of his time with the Timbers.

"It was one of the highlights of my life being part of that team," Amar said. "Working with this organization has been amazing. Running out onto the field with those guys in 2015 in Columbus, hoisting the cup with Gavin Wilkinson and the after party, it was amazing."

Nothing else was stolen from the home. According to Amar, he thinks this incident was "personal."

"It feels punitive, somebody did it just to be mean toward me," Amar said.

Contact non-emergency dispatch at 503-629-0111 if you have any information about the ring.
