    Dallas police have recovered thousands of dollars' worth of Cowboys memorabilia stolen from a fan's storage unit and sold.

    Police announced Tuesday that they recovered collectible jerseys from Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach and Tony Dorsett.

    Thieves broke into several storage bins at Extra Space Storage in the 5400 block Lemmon Avenue and took $30,000 worth of framed artwork and autographed memorabilia Aug. 9.

    An autographed photo of Alex Rodriguez, a jersey autographed by Pete Rose and an autographed Muhammad Ali, Thrilla in Manila boxing robe were also stolen.

    A tip to the storage manager helped police locate an individual and recover some items. Police secured the name of another person, who was jailed in an unrelated case, and learned some of the valuable sports pieces were sold to employees at a Dallas hotel.

    Detective Craig Kier visited hotel workers and recovered most of the stolen property, for return to the owner.

    A suspect was charged Monday with burglary of a building. Further details weren't immediately available.
