Two years' jail for wedding ring burglar

A BURGLAR who stole a couple’s wedding rings has been jailed for two years.

The rings have been returned to the engaged couple ahead of their wedding later this month.

Toni Bell (27), of Albert Street in Maltby, admitted two counts of burglary and was sentenced at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday.

PC Susannah Taylor said: “Thanks to the quick work of our performance crime team, we were able to identify Bell, arrest her and recover most of the property she had stolen.

“We have been able to reunite the wedding rings with the happy couple and we wish them the very best for their future together.

“This was a really happy ending to our investigation, and I hope it serves as another reminder that we are dedicated to tackling burglary and will do whatever we can to robustly investigate these crimes and locate those responsible, bringing them before the courts.

“Bell is now behind bars for her crimes and we hope the Maltby community are reassured by the swift action taken.”

The incidents took place in Maltby between June 7 and 10. Two further counts of burglary were taken into consideration.
