Vt. Police Say Thief Proposed With Stolen Ring

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. — A diamond engagement ring didn't have the outcome a Vermont man had hoped for. His girlfriend said yes, but the ring landed him in jail.

Burlington police say 25-year-old Ryan Jarvis is charged with stealing the $3,200 ring from a Zales jewelry store.

WCAX-TV ( ) reports that Jarvis was looking at jewelry in the store for about an hour when he asked to see the 1-carat white gold solitaire ring Monday afternoon and then took off with it.

Police say they received tips that led to a posting on Facebook by Jarvis' girlfriend in which she showed off the ring.

Burlington police officer Jesse Stewart says Jarvis confessed. He pleaded not guilty to retail theft on Wednesday.

Police say the woman didn't know the ring was stolen.
