Robber flees with $3,000 wedding ring in shady dealing

NIAGARA FALLS – A North Tonawanda woman who tried to sell a $3,000 wedding ring online ended up with no cash and no ring.

Police, meanwhile, suspect the robbery may have been a drug deal gone bad.

The victim told police she advertised the ring online and received a text message from an unknown person and agreed to meet him in front of the post office on Pine Avenue at 8:30 p.m. Monday.

When the victim agreed to show the robber the ring close up, he grabbed it and fled, according to police.

Police noted that one of the final text messages from the robber was, “Sorry I don’t sale u crack!!”
