A Braselton man’s plan to get an engagement ring back from an ex-fiancé didn’t happen as he planned.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office was called to a property dispute last week at a Hudson Drive address, where the man said he and his girlfriend had ended their relationship.
The man asked the woman to return an engagement ring, valued at $1,000. The woman laid the ring on a table, only to later take it back, according to the ex-fiancé.
She later refused to return the ring when he asked about it.
