Man Steals Girlfriend's Ring to Give to Wife
Tue 11-12-2012

According to police reports, a northeastern Pennsylvania man stole his ex-girlfriend’s engagement ring on Thanksgiving in hopes of patching up his relationship with his wife.

Donald Albritton swiped the ring while his former girlfriend made Thanksgiving dinner and later gave it to his current wife.

Investigators say Donald Albritton had gone to his ex’s home to drop off a check and thank her for not involving the police in another matter.
But The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports witnesses claimed they saw him palm the ring before he left.

Donald Albritton was charged with theft and released on bail following his arraignment Tuesday. A phone listing for him could not immediately be located.
