Bride Arrested For Stealing Jewelry At Her Wedding Reception

Authorities arrested an Onalaska bride after her wedding reception on Sunday for stealing rings from the venue, according to police reports.

Connie Sykes, 58, is on surveillance video at River Jack’s Restaurant and Lounge, 1835 Rose St., stealing a small case displaying rings from a local jeweler that was set up near the hostess station. An employee found the bride’s bra insert near where the case had been.

Sykes denied stealing the case when police contacted her at home about 8:20 p.m. Sunday, even as her husband found the item while looking through their wedding gifts, according to reports.
Police recovered 76 rings worth about $1,000.
