ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Police Department said Wednesday it has arrested multiple suspects in connection with the home burglary of DeMarcus Ware on Sunday night and that it has recovered the Denver Broncos linebacker's property, including his Super Bowl ring.

Denver police took to Twitter -- the same place it had posted pictures on Monday of the men suspected of the break-in (images from cameras in Ware's home) -- to announce the arrests.

Immediately following Broncos practice on Wednesday, Ware had not yet been notified of the arrests, but he did say that he "had a burglary ... everything's being taken care of."

Ware said he arrived home at about 10:30 p.m. after the Broncos' 27-9 victory over the Houston Texans on Monday night and began to notice someone had gone through his belongings and that some items were missing.

One was the diamond-encrusted ring each Broncos player received for winning Super Bowl 50. Each ring does have the recipient's name on it.

"[It's] the first time something like that has happened," Ware said. "... I feel like when people going through your things, it's like vandalizing your stuff. Not about material things, it's about you going through my stuff, you've been in my house ... it doesn't feel like home anymore.

"Things happen, you've just to be positive and move on."

Asked if he thought it would be difficult for a thief to sell a Super Bowl ring with his name on it, Ware said: "I don't know if he's unloaded it or not. I'm just glad I wasn't in there when he was, because I would have sacked him.

"Things happen.''

Ware also credited the people who spread the photos posted on social media by Denver police, saying fans sent them "out everywhere.'' Ware added he had believed his home was secure before the incident but that the burglary make him pause.

"You always worry about safety, because my kids are there sometimes,'' Ware said.

"I just take it day to day and think about it ... and try to put it on the back burner.''
