DENVER — If it were up to DeMarcus Ware, he may have simply chosen to sack two burglars who stole his Super Bowl 50 ring. Instead, they're heading to jail. 

Ware, who played for the Broncos' championship team but has since retired, reported the Burglary in October of 2016. Less than a year later, police have captured the criminals and the District Attorney's Office has procured a conviction. 

Both men who broke into Ware's home — and were caught on camera doing so — pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary. That means Sergio Irreza, 32, and Billy McCaslin, 41, are headed to jail. 

Both men formerly worked for the building in which Ware lived. Ware described the burglary as an "inside job." 

The District Attorney's Office said McCaslin will head to jail for 60 days, while Irreza received a 30 day sentence. Both received two years of probation and 75 hours of community service. 

See how the saga unfolded in the stories on the next page:

Ware reports the burglary, releases photos to police from his surveillance video. 

Police quickly identify and capture the suspects. Ware says not to mess with him or Broncos country. 

Suspects first appear in court as police confirm there was no forced entry into Ware's apartment. 

DeMarcus Ware then told all to FOX Sports, explaining it was an inside job. 

Now the case is closed and the future Hall of Famer can rest easy.
