Police Recover Stolen Camera, Wedding Pics from Grandview Store
COLUMBUS (Lisa Rantala/Ken Hines) -- Police recovered approximately 100 photos and arrested two suspects just days after two newlyweds were told their wedding pictures were stolen from their photographer’s home.
Cortez Peyton and Daquan Shropshire faced a judge on Wednesday on charges of receiving stolen property after officers found a memory card in their possession that included 5000 pictures from Emily and Nick Brunotte's wedding.
A manager at World of Photos in Grandview reported Peyton and Shropshire to police on Tuesday, when the suspects allegedly tried to sell him the wedding photographer's Nikon camera and lens worth approximately $15,000.
News of the equipment's recovery was welcome by Emily Bronotte's cousin, who appealed to the public for the pictures' return after the theft.
"In the back of my mind I thought, 'There's no way we're going to find these pictures,'" said Jenny Jehnzen said. "That was news Emily wasn't ready to hear."
Police do not believe Peyton and Shropshire stole the memory card and camera from the photographer's home, but rather came into possession of the equipment after the July 28 robbery.
They are still looking for approximately 19 4gb-8gb cards with the remaining wedding photos on it, and the bride's family is offering a $500 reward for those cards.
The Brunottes are expected to return home from their honeymoon in mid-August.
