A stolen engagement ring has been recovered by the Saskatoon Police Service (SPS). A heartbroken woman is relieved to hear her “irreplaceable” jewelry will be returned shortly.
Saskatoon police spokesperson Kelsie Fraser said the 30-year-old woman initially reported the break-in on June 10.
The theft of the ring and other jewelry took place at a vacant residence in the 2000-block of Broadway Avenue sometime between 8 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. CT on June 9.

Tiffany Pennycook took to social media last week sharing her story with the public in hopes that somehow the ring would find its way back to her.
“I realized they had found my engagement ring. For those of you who don’t know, I was engaged to an amazing man about 3.5 years ago. He passed away when we had [carbon monoxide] CO poisoning in our home,” said a post on Pennycook’s Facebook page.
“This ring is irreplaceable to me. I’m heartbroken.”
On Monday, she was enthused to hear the good news from SPS. The ring was located at a local business in the 2300-block of 22nd Street.
“They found the ring!” said a post on Pennycook’s Facebook page.
“This city (and beyond) is incredible! And thanks to the Saskatoon Police Service for having such a great system in place to catch these things! I truly can’t thank you all enough!”
Fraser said the item, of sentimental value, has been seized and will be returned to its rightful owner in the near future.
No arrests have been made but the police break and enter unit is still investigating.
