A suspect in the theft of a bride’s engagement and wedding rings and other items worth about $100,000 from the Ritz-Carlton just before the wedding last month has been arrested.
Omar Rimlawi, 40, of Dallas is believed to be one of two men captured in a surveillance video and suspected of burglarizing two rooms booked for Jeanette Engler’s wedding party around March 10.
In addition to the wedding and engagement rings, the thieves took a sapphire and diamond ring the bride had gotten from her mother, cash and credit cards, Chanel earrings and a Chanel necklace, a Gucci wallet, makeup and other wedding day accessories, according to KDFW-TV.
Police recovered some of the items when they arrested Rimlawi, they said.
In the surveillance video posted by police, the suspects can be seen walking in a hallway toward the camera. One carries a large plastic bin containing a box and sundry items.
No word yet on any other arrests in the case.
