Two Stanley Cup championship rings were stolen from the Bronfman family in Toronto this month. But it was only part of the jewelry they’re willing to pay the crooks to return.
The Toronto Police Department isn’t happy, but the family of the former owners of hockey’s Montreal Canadiens are willing to reward the burglars who stole some precious family heirlooms.
A safe was stolen from the home of Paul and Judy Bronfman on the evening of Nov. 8. The safe contained 59 jewels, including Stanley Cup rings from the 1973-74 and 1974-75 seasons, inscribed with the Bronfman name, which date from the time Paul Bronfman’s father, Edward, co-owned the Canadiens.
The family has hired a private investigator to find out where they are, but they say they’re willing to trade cash for the goods, no questions asked. It’s a concept the cops say could get the family in trouble.
