Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Skip Bertman and his family can sleep easy again.
    
Less than 72 hours after burglars sneaked into their home and stole a few championship rings, Baton Rouge police arrested three teens Monday.
    
Cpl. Don Coppola Jr. tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1nJS0fB ) 18-year-old Moises Marquez and two 16-year-old boys were booked with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
    
Coppola says Marquez is related to the Bertman's house cleaner and had been inside the home several times.
    
Police say the trio sneaked into the home early Saturday through an unlocked bathroom window.
    
During Bertman's 18-year stint as LSU's head baseball coach from 1984 to 2001, the program won five national titles at the College World Series. He also coached the 1996 U.S. Olympic team to a bronze medal finish in Summer Games in Atlanta.
