(AP) -

Baton Rouge police say a student's speech introducing President Barack Obama and autographed by the president was in a book bag stolen from her car.

But Cpl. Don Coppola Jr. says police arrested the alleged thief, found the bag in a trash bin, and returned the speech to Che'dra Joseph.

Her car was among vehicles broken into during a basketball game Friday at McKinley High, where Obama spoke Thursday.

Police say 17-year-old Keondrae Ricks was arrested Saturday, after trying to get cash after a purchase using a stolen credit card. It was not clear whether he had an attorney who could comment.
