Police have leads but no arrest in wedding thief case

Havre de Grace police are still looking for the woman who made off with cash-filled wedding cards at a wedding reception last Saturday.

The woman stole them from a reception being held at the Maritime Museum, not the Decoy Museum, as previously reported by police and in an online story, Officer Jeff Gilpin, of the Havre de Grace Police Department, said.

"We have located and conducted interviews with potential suspects," Gilpin said Thursday morning. "At this time, the investigation is still ongoing and there has been no arrests."

The woman is described as white with curly blonde hair, wearing a tank top and shorts or Capri pants.

She stole the cards at about 1 p.m. outside the Maritime Museum in the 100 block of Lafayette Street.

The day wasn't ruined completely, according to one person familiar with the situation, and several people have e-mailed and posted comments online that they would like to help make up for some of the stolen money.

In an e-mail after this story first appeared online, Jessica Calder, who is office manager for the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum, wrote that the day was not lost and "the couple were incredibly gracious and understanding and managed to have a lovely wedding reception despite the disgusting actions of this horrible woman."

Calder also wrote that she witnessed what happened and "immediately contacted the police with the description of the individual and the tag # of the car as well as the make and color."

"The thief did not make off with the box; she did, however, take the cards out of the box," Calder's e-mail continued. "Luckily, we believe that the envelopes were mostly filled with checks, and only one or two contained cash."
