ANOKA, Minn. (AP) – Authorities in Anoka County are looking for a man they say crashed two Twin Cities-area weddings and made off with card boxes full of money intended for the bridge and groom.

Reports say that the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office has issued an arrest warrant for a 41-year-old man. Thefts at weddings in Brooklyn Park on July 6 and Ham Lake on July 24 were captured on surveillance video.

The sheriff’s office says the first video shows a man and woman entering the reception, grabbing the card box and leaving. The second video shows the same two and a second man doing the same. Police are looking for several more suspects.

Cassandra and Jeremy Shannon, the couple holding the Ham Lake wedding, say the theft left them distraught and broke up their reception early.
