Man Accused Of Stealing From Best In Court

(Portland, OR)  --  A man accused of stealing a wedding ring from Portland MAX train victim Ricky Best remains jailed after a court appearance yesterday.  Authorities claim George Tschaggeny also stole a backpack and wallet from Best as he lay dying.  He faces charges of second-degree theft, identity theft, abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence.  He did not enter a plea.  Police allege Tschaggeny was able to make off with the items amid the commotion surrounding the stabbings of two men who were trying to help two young women who were being harassed. But surveillance video captured the theft.
