Bride-to-be in shock as 'lowlife' steals wedding ring

WHEN MAREE Anderson realised her wedding ring had been stolen two weeks before her big day she was sure it was a sick joke.

The Evans Head local had been keeping her wedding ring inside a key-less safe at her house, along with four other rings, two of which were her late mother's, legal papers including her wills and three war medals belonging to her fiancee's late father. The stolen ring can be described as gold with eight diamonds.

"Some lowlife has broken into my home and stole my safe, inside is my wedding ring. I am getting married in two weeks if anyone can keep a look out, thanks one upset bride," Ms Anderson posted under Not Selling, on the For Sale Lismore and Northern Rivers Facebook page on Wednesday.

"We were both in shock when we realised," the 63-year-old said.

"We didn't know the safe was stolen until we cleaned up the room and went to put my passport in there and get my wedding ring out. We think it was an inside job but I know that it wasn't my son. He'd been living in that room.

"He had told me he'd had quite a few people over while we were away."
