QUINCY, Mass. -- Police conducting a raid at a suspected drug dealer's home south of Boston made an unusual discovery - a stolen 2004 Red Sox World Series ring.

Quincy police had been watching the home for several months amid an investigation into oxycodone distribution in the city, according to CBS Boston. On Tuesday, they executed a search warrant after witnessing an alleged drug deal.

Capt. John Dougan says they found a "significant" number of oxycodone pills, money-counting machines, police scanners, $9,000 in cash and the ring.

Dougan says the ring belongs to a team employee, not a player or coach. The Red Sox broke an 86-year World Series championship drought in 2004.

"I don't know how this gentleman got possession of this ring but it was a little bit of a shock for our drug unit to find an actual Red Sox World Series ring," Dougan said, according to CBS Boston.

Dennis Leclair and James White, of Quincy, and George Green, of Dorchester all face drug charges and are due to be arraigned Tuesday in Quincy District Court.
