Judge tells police: 'Take burglar to help find stolen wedding ring'
A judge has told cops to take a burglar from prison to help recover a stolen wedding ring.
Ashley Simpson, 30, had offered to reunite a distraught mum with the ring he stole in a house raid.
Judge Sean Morris said on Friday: “I want him out of the prison in a car pointing to exactly where he says this poor woman’s wedding ring is.
“It’s got to happen. If it doesn’t, otherwise I will be ringing up the Chief Constable.
“This is a very precious item to the victim.
“Whilst he’s in a car, if he wants to point out anything else that he’s done then he can do so.”
