Thieves steal wedding gifts of Plymouth newlyweds

Lisa and Brian Finnvik were married Saturday at the Profile Event Center on the University of Minnesota campus, and their cards and gifts were left in a parked car at a Holiday Inn, Fox 9 reports. The next morning, they discovered the vehicle's four doors left wide open after someone stole roughly $3,000 worth of gift cards and checks. Thieves left most of the household gift presents behind.

The Finnviks say their experience should be a lesson to others. "The biggest thing we want is to put the word out, tell people getting married, 'Don't leave stuff in the trunk.' There are people who will prey on that," Brian Finnvik told Fox 9.

But this is not a new crime. Just a few months ago Josh and Emily Wood were another newlywed couple whose gifts were stolen on their wedding night from a vehicle parked at a hotel. The Finnviks might be cheered by that couple's story – police a day later found some of their gifts.
