Stolen wreaths 'ring' in the holidays

In a story that has a little bit of everything, a New Hampshire court bailiff was caught up in a crime "ring" -- if you'll excuse the pun -- after it was found that the wreaths he was selling in a courthouse lobby were stolen.

But that's not all:

[Sheriff James] Hardy said a woman in her 70s came to the courthouse last week with the wreaths and asked a bailiff she knew if they could be sold in the courthouse. She said she made the wreaths at home, according to Hardy.
The wreaths -- still bearing price tags from Jacques Flower Shop of Goffstown -- were sold out of the lobby for $10 each and were purchased by workers in the courthouse. Seven courthouse employees bought the wreaths.

You can read the full story on the Union Leader's web site.
