Los Angeles Police Officers Save Christmas Marriage Proposal

On Sunday, Los Angeles man Andrew Johnson had planned to propose to his girlfriend at a holiday party. But when he went to his car to grab the engagement ring, he realized it wasn't there.

Johnson had been hiding the ring at work so his girlfriend -- and now-fiancée -- Kate wouldn't find it. He brought it home on Sunday and left it in his car for a little over an hour while they prepared for the party.

During that time, the Los Angeles Police Department received a call about two suspects breaking into cars near Johnson's apartment. The officers caught the suspects and found an engagement ring in their possession.

They then noticed Johnson standing near his unlocked car. He told them about the missing ring, but one officer wasn't so quick to hand it over.

"He was coy at first and he said, ‘Do you think you could describe this ring to me?’ Of course I could and I had a receipt for it. He said, ‘Well, in that case, I think this is the universe’s way of telling you: You need to marry this girl,'" Johnson told KTLA.
