Stolen ring blessed by the Vatican in Rome is returned to is rightful owner.

“I received a case where a handyman stole some jewelry from and elderly, 92, female. My victim was very sharp and was able to give drawings of her jewelry. One piece was a gold sailor pin that she got during WWII for her husband who was in the Navy. The other unique piece was her deceased husbands wedding band that she had a cross placed in the center. She had the cross added in Rome and then had the ring blessed at the Vatican. I used the drawings to search leads by description. The first one I searched for was the gold sailor pin. I immediately got a hit. The pawn ticket also had a gold ring with a cross in the band. I recovered the property and returned them to the owner. A warrant was issued for the suspect and he was subsequently arrested.”
