BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - 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. It was unclear if he had a lawyer.
Police say the woman didn't know the ring was stolen.
