3 wedding crashers make off with couple’s wedding gifts
The couple wanted to get married last year, but Darreck got shot three times at a family member’s birthday party. He had to survive so the wedding could ultimately happen.
‘(Saturday) was huge,’ Darreck said.
The lot behind his mother’s house on Wall Street in Melvindale was transformed into a place where 150 family members and friends could celebrate, the couple said.
But at some point, three women who were not invited, wandered over.
The trio told someone they were bringing the presents indoors — but when the ceremony was over, the gifts were nowhere to be found, the couple said.
‘Those gifts were given to us from our family and our friends — and for someone to take the time out to mess up my special moment, that hurts me,’ Alicia said.
Police are investigating the incident.
‘After the wedding, we couldn’t even go to a honeymoon or nothing. We just went home,’ Darreck said. ‘It killed the whole vibe.’
To date no arrests have been made.
