Scranton, PA- In a Thanksgiving caper, police say a northeastern Pennsylvania man stole his ex-girlfriend's engagement ring in hopes of patching up his relationship with his wife.

Scranton police say 35-year-old Donald Albritton swiped the ring while his former girlfriend made Thanksgiving dinner and later gave it to his current wife.

Investigators say Albritton had gone to his ex's home to drop off a check and thank her for not filing a police report against his teenaged daughter.

The two believed the daughter stole boots and a bracelet from the former girlfriend, Megan White.

When White took off her ring to make Thanksgiving dinner, witnesses say he palmed the ring before he left.

Albritton was booked with theft and released on bail.
