The Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a female suspect from a series of wedding gift thefts. She’s been dubbed The Wedding Crasher in local media and the CCSO has reached out to the Texas Hill Country and beyond in a public social media post for the purpose of having her brought to justice.

The Comal County Crime Stoppers allege that the suspect is involved in a growing number of thefts at wedding venues. In their efforts to identify the woman in question, they took to their Facebook page with the following details: “…The Comal County Sheriff’s Office is seeking to identify a female suspect involved in a series of wedding venue theft offenses…The Wedding Crasher has been frequenting wedding events not only in Comal County, but surrounding counties as well, preying on unsuspecting families and friends. The suspect arrives uninvited to weddings, poses as a guest and then steals the gifts. The Comal County Sheriff’s Office needs the public’s assistance in identifying the Wedding Crasher before she strikes again. Let’s not let her ruin anyone else’s special day and bring this crasher to justice. You could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $4,000.” The necessary information for providing a tip online or via phone are available here.

Having taken the concept of wedding crashing to a whole new (and even more hurtful) level, the Wedding Crasher shows up uninvited to a wedding, coming off as a guest, and given the opportunity, she allegedly steals the wedding gifts intended for the happy couple. Detective Scott Frakes has noted that authorities first became aware of this individual’s activities following a November 2018 wedding in Spring Branch. Since that time, there have been five more instances, at a minimum, of which they have notice, and many of them were at the same venue. He also said that other similar thefts have occurred in another part of Comal County, in addition to Kendall and Blanco County.
