Over $7,400 in cash, checks and gift cards given to the bride and groom were stolen from a July 20 wedding reception at Majestic Oaks Golf Club in Ham Lake, according to the Anoka County Attorney’s Office.

“The defendant turned a day of joy and celebration into one of anguish for the victims,” said Anoka County Attorney Tony Palumbo. “He should, and has been, held accountable for his actions.”
