A woman in Texas has seen the movie Wedding Crashers one too many times and decided that instead of crashing weddings to fall in love with a bridesmaid and get some free cake, she would take a much more sinister approach and crash weddings to steal the couple’s wedding gifts.
She’s allegedly done this at three different weddings in 6 months. I don’t know if I should be jealous of all the free cake she’s gotten lately or feel sorry for her for having to put on pantyhose and heels so much.
According to People:
Authorities in Comal County, Texas are looking for a woman who they say has crashed at least three weddings to steal gifts from unsuspecting couples.
According to a press release from the Comal County Crime Stoppers, the unidentified woman “has been frequenting wedding events not only in Comal County, but surrounding counties as well, preying on unsuspecting families and friends. The suspect arrives uninvited to weddings, poses as a guest and then steals the gifts.”
“This elusive suspect has been dubbed ‘The Wedding Crasher,’” the release states.
According to the Comal County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect may have crashed at least three weddings between December 2018 and August 3, 2019.
So rude to just steal gifts and leave! She should at least put in the time by talking to the most annoying cousin or creepiest uncle, do the chicken dance, and endure some terrible toasts.
The Sheriff’s department tells PEOPLE that the woman allegedly stole envelopes that contained cash and gift cards. She allegedly waits until the gift table is unattended, and then takes some of the envelopes. She is not suspected of stealing any larger merchandise at any of the weddings.
The Sheriff’s department does not know the total value of the items that may have been stolen.
Well, let’s hope this lady gets caught and justice is served. Justice being her paying back all the money and then having to actually attend weddings, and even worse, the bridal showers.
