The Brown County Sheriff’s Office has issued a Wisconsin Crime Alert in an effort to solve a theft from an elder adult at a Green Bay area nursing home. Detective sergeant Zak Holschbach said his agency learned recently that a suspect or suspects removed a wedding/engagement ring soldered together from the finger of a patient in the memory care unit in the Village of Howard. The victim has severe disabilities & is unable to even understand the theft occurred. A family member noticed the ring was missing and explained it had been years since it had been removed, so it would’ve caused pain in the process of removing it from the victim’s finger. Antique/Collectible dealers, jewelry stores and pawn/resale shops in the state have been alerted about the theft.
UPDATE: The ring has been returned no other information has been released at this time
