ONALASKA, WI (WTAQ) - Here comes the bride – to the police station. A La Crosse area woman is accused of stealing 76 rings from the place where her wedding reception was held on Saturday night.
Officers said 58-year-old Connie Sykes of Onalaska was caught on a surveillance video taking a small case from River Jack’s Restaurant and Lounge – and a bra insert was found close to where the case was taken.
It was part of a display from an area jeweler. Police are recommending a theft charge.
They said Sykes denied taking the case when officers contacted her on Sunday night – even after her husband found it while going through their wedding gifts.
The rings have a total value of $1,000.
