BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - The most exciting day of a couple’s life turned into a nightmare when they learned someone stole all their wedding cards and monetary gifts.

The search is on for the person who stole Emma and Chris Cox’s joy of tying the knot by pilfering between $3,000 to $5,000 in gift cards and cash they received on their wedding night at Mixon Fruit Farms in Bradenton.

“My dad pulled his truck up to put our gifts in the car and a lady pulled up and stole my bag," says Emma Cox.

Surveillance video shows a woman walking right up to the truck where the bride and groom’s gifts were and stealing a bag, which also contained the couple’s newly issued marriage license.

The wedding happened Saturday and a report was filed with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. The newlywed couple and workers with the farm believe it was an inside job.

So far there has been no arrest.
