Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel has returned a stolen wedding ring to its owner and arrested an exterminator on a grand larceny complaint.

Julie Riggins, 36, discovered the ring missing after her home near Edmond was sprayed for bugs.

Christopher Binkley, 19, was arrested after investigators discovered the $8,500 ring had been sold to a pawnshop for $195. He also faces a complaint of making a false declaration to a pawn broker.

Deputies said he admitted to the crime after he was questioned.

Riggins reported the ring missing on May 31, and it was returned to her Thursday. She was surprised to get it back so quickly.

She and her husband, John Bradley, 38, celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary in January. She said the ring has sentimental value.

“My husband had actually gotten my original ring reset for our 10th anniversary,” Riggins said. “The ring sort of reaffirmed our marriage. I'm really happy to have it back.” has disabled the comments for this article.
