FLORIDA, USA–Police are now looking for a man who proposed to a woman with a wedding ring he stole from another lover in Florida in the United States.

The suspect, identified as Joseph Davis, is now wanted on a felony charge of grand theft, Volusia’s Sheriff’s Office announced in a release via Facebook yesterday, Feb. 13.

Davis went by different names for his two girlfriends: he was Joseph Brown to one of them while he went by Marcus Brown to the other.

“Earlier this year, the Orange City woman came forward and told detectives that she discovered her boyfriend was actually engaged to someone else. When she looked up the fiancée’s Facebook page, she noticed a photo of her wearing a wedding band and engagement ring that was identical to her own, from a prior marriage,” police said.

“When she went to check her jewelry box, she discovered her rings were missing. So were several other pieces of jewelry, including a diamond ring that belonged to her grandmother,” they added.

The total value of property stolen by Davis was about $6,270 (around P300,000), according to the report.
