Here’s a story that turned out a bit different than I assumed from the headline. I thought that the sheriff was going to be the groom – assuming the sheriff was a guy (are there any women sheriffs out there?) but I couldn’t figure out how he was going to marry more than one of them.  Duh – too much morning, too little coffee.

Michigan sheriff offers to marry fugitive robbers if they surrender

LAPEER, Michigan – The Lapeer County, MIchigan, sheriff wants to help two bank robbery suspects tie the knot.

Sheriff Ron Kalanquin says he wants the Lapeer couple off the streets before their cash runs out and they attempt another robbery.

A 24-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman are suspected of taking about five thousand dollars in the September 19 robbery of a Lapeer County Bank & Trust branch in Deerfield Township, about 100 kilometres north of Detroit.

Detectives determined the robbery money was used to buy wedding rings, pay back rent and pay the woman’s lawyer for work done in a child-custody case.

Kalanquin says the couple met after the man was released from the county jail and introduced to her by another ex-con.

Kalanquin has appealed to the couple’s relatives and friends to alert police to their whereabouts.
