A Man Is Busted For Proposing with a Stolen Ring
Over the weekend, 21-year-old Robert Driscoll of Trafford, Pennsylvania wanted to propose to his girlfriend, 20-year-old Crystal Yamnitsky. But he didn't have any money.
So while they were at a party at a friend's house, Robert STOLE that friend's engagement ring. And then he gave it to Crystal.
She immediately took a photo of it and posted it on Facebook. She wrote, quote, "Look what Robby gave me. I love him so much."
But, ya know, when you post pictures of things you stole on Facbeook, other people see them. One of Crystal's Facebook friends was her cousin . . . and he saw the photo and recognized the ring.
He told the friend who threw the party . . . that friend called the police . . . and they went over to Crystal's house.
When they got there, she told them Robert was out getting the ring resized. Turns out he'd actually taken it to a pawn shop and sold it for $250. It was a three-carat diamond ring that was ACTUALLY valued at $12,000.
He was arrested for theft . . . Crystal was arrested for conspiracy and receiving stolen property.
