That look is actually of relief.

It’s one thing to have your wedding ring stolen, a completely different dish if that valuable and memory-packed piece of bling gets secreted away by the perp in their special parts. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what 19-year-old Elizabeth Jones did when she stole from Wakeman resident Michele Halliwell.

According to the Sandusky Register
, Jones was part of a roofing crew working on Halliwell’s house recently. The Elyria resident asked the homeowner if she could come inside and use the bathroom. Later in the day, Halliwell noticed her husband’s wedding ring was gone. Her purse and wallet had been disturbed. And Grandma’s diamond ring — that was AWOL as well. Together, the jewelry cost around $5,000.

Erie County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene. They soon found Jones behind the barn. She evidently has an unfortunate taste for the big boy drugs: Jones was found with two crack pipes, a syringe, crack, three Vicodin and one Xanax. The roofer quickly copped to taking the items as well as having a longtime addiction. Oh, and the rings, they’re in . . . well you see . . . had to . . . errr

She’d hid the rings where the sun doesn’t often shine, as the saying has it. Police had to take Jones to a female nurse to recover the items. She’s currently in jail facing charges of theft, burglary, drug possession and tampering with evidence.

“Tampering.” That’s what they call it. What can you do with a ring after something like that?
