Police say thieves swiped wedding gifts from newlyweds in South Burlington.
The couple was about to start their honeymoon and spent Sunday night at the Green Mountain Suites Hotel in South Burlington. Police say Emily and Kyle Doyle left their pickup truck locked in the hotel parking lot. Monday morning they found all their wedding cards torn open in a pile next to their truck.
"Someone during the night had jimmied the lock on the back of the pickup truck removed the box full of cards and stood there and actually torn open each card. They left the checks behind but they removed the cash. And these were cards that the couple had not even opened yet," said police chief Trevor Whipple.
Police estimate the thieves made off with $2,000-$3,000 in cash.
