Massachusetts alleged thief accused of stealing dead veteran’s wedding band

An alleged thief is accused of stealing a dead disabled veteran’s gold wedding band, according to police who say the criminal pawned the ring for $85.

Massachusetts State Police have arrested a 53-year-old Springfield man, Antonio Bell, and charged him in connection with stealing the wedding band. Bell is a certified nursing assistant who had contact with the veteran for the last three years, including in the days after he died.

A State Police trooper last month responded to the Veterans Home at Holyoke — formerly the Soldiers’ Home at Holyoke — to investigate the wedding band theft. Security staff reported that the dead veteran’s gold wedding band had been taken during the process of moving his remains to a funeral home.
