A wedding dress theft occurred last Friday evening in Maplewood. 24 year old Stefanie Jacobson’s $1500 wedding dress was left in the care of her vindictive mother. “I really thought it would be safe with her until my big day”, said Stefanie.
It appears that Stefanie’s dress along with all five bridesmaid’s dresses and all six tuxedos was in transit to the rehearsal dinner on Friday evening at around 5:30PM. At the intersection of Frost Ave and White Bear Ave, a carjacking was taking place in front of Linda Jacobson, Stefanie’s mom. “I was dreading bringing all of that stuff to the dinner. I really don’t like Stone [Roberts, Stefanie’s fiance]”, said Linda. “When I saw the carjacking, I saw my opportunity to disrupt the greatest day of my daughter’s life.”
When the carjacking started, Linda jumped out and offered her car rather than the helpless victim in front of her. “The thief just looked at me like I was crazy”, said Linda. “He was like, okay. I can take your car instead.” The thief then hopped into the car and drove off. “I was so happy”, said Linda. “I just had to tell my daughter that I ruined her wedding! It was the greatest feeling a mother could have.”
The wedding continued, but Linda was not invited.
