Investigators on Long Island say they have recovered a trove of Boston Red Sox property stolen from Fenway Park, including a home plate, Red Sox uniforms and a wall marker.

Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota is expected to release more information about the May 5 arrest of Jamie Pritchard Holland on Thursday.

Holland, a Massachusetts resident, faces charges of third-degree criminal possession of stolen property in the Fenway Park burglary.

Investigators recovered a home plate, uniforms and equipment, a first base glove used by Kevin Youklis, cleats worn by second baseman Dustin Pedroia, the Fenway Park 380-feet outfield wall market, and other Boston Sox property, according to the DA's office.

It was not immediately clear how the DA's office located the stolen equipment and arrested Holland.

In another case of stolen baseball memorabilia, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown announced Wednesday that Charlie Samuels, the former clubhouse manager for the Mets, had pilfered $2 million worth of team collectibles.

Samuels was charged with 21 counts, including criminal possession of stolen property, grand larceny and criminal tax fraud.
