Stolen wedding dress spotted for sale on Facebook

By Associated Press

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. » Sweetwater County deputies have arrested a man on a theft charge after a woman spotted her stolen wedding dress for sale on Facebook.

Authorities said Tuesday the dress and other items were taken from a home north of Rock Springs in February. On Thursday, the woman told authorities the dress was listed in a posting for a garage sale at a Rock Springs-area home.

Sheriff's officials say an undercover deputy bought the dress at the sale. Deputies then searched the home with a warrant they had already obtained and found other allegedly stolen goods, including a motorcycle missing from Uinta County since 2010.

Fifty-year-old Leon Lynch was arrested on suspicion of theft, wrongful taking or disposing of property and marijuana possession. No phone listing could be found for him.

Why do women spend so much on a wedding dress??? Shoots you'll only wear it once. Why not rent one like the guys do for a tux?

Take it one more step further. Is that why female tennis players no longer wear white?

What do you care what a woman spends her money on? Tens of thousands of people every year spend more money on a single Super Bowl ticket than most wedding dresses cost. Who are you to judge how others spend their money?

Yup, told my daughters...I ain't paying $1000s for a wedding. If you want a big one pay yourself. But I'll give you some money cause I love you...

Same. Or try a 2 to 1 dollar match to make sure they've got skin in the game AFTER they have 6 months living expenses saved.
