RICHMOND, R.I. (AP) _ Two Rhode Island men have been arrested in connection with the theft of a rare baseball card.
WPRI-TV (http://yhoo.it/1dW5TEq ) reports Wednesday that a Ted Williams rookie card was among the items stolen from a home in Richmond in July.

Jewelry, a gun and electronic devices were also taken during the break in.  

Neighbors gave police a description of a vehicle that later led authorities to the suspects.  

Police say 22-year-old Louis Northup and 18-year-old Patrick Celico were arrested Monday.

They are both South Kingstown residents and have been charged with breaking and entering.  

The Boston Red Sox icon’s card was recovered.
It was unclear Wednesday if they are represented by an attorney.
