Ivy Peterson accused of stealing 2 Dolphins Super Bowl rings from home

Rings taken from home of former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Bob Kuechenberg

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A 25-year-old man is behind bars after breaking into two Fort Lauderdale homes this week, one of which is the home of former Dolphins offensive lineman Bob Kuechenberg, police said.

Ivy Peterson is facing multiple charges including burglary, trespassing and possession of cocaine.

Police said the first robbery happened Monday at a home in the 500 block of Northeast 16th Court.

In that case, the homeowner's vehicle was stolen.

While searching for the suspect, police say a Broward Sheriff's Office deputy saw Peterson exit Kuechenberg's residence early Tuesday morning through an unlocked window.

Police say law enforcement officials chased Peterson through the parking lot of nearby New River Middle School where he was apprehended by police K-9 units.

According to the arrest report, Peterson stole two 1972 and 1984 Miami Dolphins Super Bowl rings from Kuechenberg's home. The rings were found on the suspect and returned to Kuechenberg.
