She noticed a photo of her wearing a wedding band and engagement ring identical to her own from a prior marriage. She immediately checked her jewelry box and found out that her jewelry is missing, including the diamond ring from her grandmother,

The grand total of the missing property was $6,270.

The other girlfriend is from Orlando. The two women got in touch, and several things were returned. After they both broke up because they found out that ‘Brown,’ the surname the man went with when he dated them, was two-timing.

They found out that ‘Brown’ had even brought the girlfriend from Orlando to the Orange County girlfriend’s house. He claimed it as his and asked her to move in two which she agreed. But after preparations were done, he suddenly canceled. Together with that, the fiancée noticed her laptop and jewelry missing as well.
