A 27-year-old woman who robbed a couple of their wedding rings is now serving time behind bars for two years.

Toni Bell (pictured), of Albert Street, Maltby, appeared before Sheffield Crown Court on Monday 3 July to be sentenced after pleading guilty to two counts of burglary.

They took place in the Maltby area between 7 June and 10 June this year.

Two further counts of burglary were taken into consideration.

PC Susannah Taylor, the investigating officer, said: “In one of the burglaries Bell committed last month, she stole engagement and wedding rings from a couple who are due to get married at the end of this month.

“Thanks to the quick work of our Performance Crime Team, we were able to identify Bell, arrest her and recover most of the property she had stolen.

“We have been able to reunite the wedding rings with the happy couple and we wish them the very best for their future together.

“This was a really happy ending to our investigation, and I hope it serves as another reminder that we are dedicated to tackling burglary and will do whatever we can to robustly investigate these crimes and locate those responsible, bringing them before the courts.

“Bell is now behind bars for her crimes and we hope the Maltby community are reassured by the swift action taken.”
