Ogdensburg, New York, Jun 15:  Police have recovered a stolen engagement ring given by artist Frederic Remington to his fiancee more than a century ago.


Police in Ogdensburg arrested 24-year-old Blake R. Peabody on a grand larceny charge Monday, a week after the ring was discovered missing from the city's Frederic Remington Art Museum. Peabody had been a part-time employee at the museum.

Police told the Watertown Daily Times that Peabody apparently planned to sell the single-carat 19th-century ring, which was recovered from his home.

Peabody pleaded not guilty in city court.

Remington was a painter, illustrator and sculptor known for his images of the American West. The artist was born in nearby Canton, New York, and died in 1909. AP
