Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell says $110K ring stolen from Stone Mountain hotel
A member of the singing group Backstreet Boys says someone stole his wife's engagement ring worth $110,000 off a hotel nightstand.
Brian Littrell told Channel 2's Tony Thomas that his family was staying at the Evergreen Marriott Resort at Stone Mountain over the weekend.
He said after they checked out and were leaving the park, his wife, Leighanne, realized she didn't have any of her jewelry. The couple immediately returned to the hotel, but said by the time they got to the room, all $120,000 worth of jewelry was missing.
"It was just kind of weird how it happened and how fast," Brian Littrell said.
"I kept my rings on the bedside table, we left the room and 15 minutes I came back , they're gone." Leighanne Littrell said.
The couple called security and said they spent several hours at the resort on Sunday, filing reports and speaking with investigators.
Sunday night, a GA Daily News crew spotted both Park police and a GBI agent at the hotel. Police will only confirm they are working a stolen property case.
The GBI is routinely called in to handle investigations for the smaller Park Police Department, which is also a state agency.
While police aren't commenting, Littrell said he believes there has been a break in the case.
Some of the jewelry has been found, but not the ring.
"We were going to leave, but come to find out there was a person, not to be named on the housekeeping, had one ring that we were looking for and one of the earrings," Littrell said.
The Littrells returned to their Metro Atlanta home Sunday evening, hoping the six-carat diamond ring will turn up.
Leighanne Littrell said she is, "Just devestated , I mean not the money, but because my husband designed my engagement ring, my wedding band. "
The Littrells said they are considering offering a reward in the case.
