La Crosse bride steals rings from wedding reception

LA CROSSE - Here comes the bride - to the police station. A La Crosse area woman is accused of stealing 76 rings from the place where her wedding reception was held on Saturday night.

Officers said 58-year-old Connie Sykes of Onalaska was caught on a surveillance video taking a small case from River Jack's Restaurant-and-Lounge - and a bra insert was found close to where the case was taken. It was part of a display from an area jeweler.

Police are recommending a theft charge. They said Sykes denied taking the case when officers contacted her on Sunday night - even after her husband found it while going through their wedding gifts. The rings have a total value of a-thousand dollars.
