UK thief who proposed with stolen ring is jailed
Police in Britain say a thief who robbed a 91-year-old woman of her jewellery and then used her wedding ring to make a marriage proposal has been jailed.
West Midlands Police said that Steven Reid, 38, (inset) and an accomplice broke into the woman's home. Police say Reid used a gold wedding ring to propose to a woman several days later.
That woman later recognised the ring in a police appeal for the return of stolen jewellery and contacted police. Reid received a four-year, nine-month sentence for burglary. Accomplice Jerome Jones received a slightly shorter sentence.
Police did not say if the wedding proposal had been accepted.
