Couple gets reunited with stolen wedding rings
Andrew Carr and Laura Newport-Olsen, who are to be married in Liverpool on August 11, their stolen wedding rings back.
The rings were stolen during a burglary at the groom’s mum’s house in Mossley Hill.
Both rings are of sentimental values: Laura’s ring had belonged to Andrew’s grandmother, which was bought in America by his grandfather.
Andrew’s ring had belonged to Laura’s grandmother, and was re-made in the style of the other ring.
The couple received many offers of help after the ECHO reported the story, with the city centre jewellers Wongs offering to make replicas of the stolen rings.
However, after police investigation the rings have now been recovered and handed back.
“We’re indescribably happy about having the rings returned to us,” Carr said.
“I’d like to thank everyone who helped us.”
A Merseyside police spokesperson said:
“An investigation was launched and officers made enquiries with local jewellers and pawnbrokers.
“One of the rings was located at a pawnbrokers yesterday, and officers later attended an address in Mossley Hill.
“A 19-year-old woman, from Mossley Hill, was arrested on suspicion of burglary with intent to steal and the second stolen ring was recovered. She was later bailed pending further enquiries,” he added.
“The rings have now been returned to their original owners and enquiries are ongoing.”
